In August The Breakfast at St. Andrew’s celebrated 36 years of serving a free meal to anyone in need every single day. 36 years is quite a feat, our volunteers have worked in blizzards, ice, extreme heat, power outages, and so much more. This accomplishment is not possible without the dedication of every single person who has ever volunteered for or donated to this program.

This year we celebrated simply by providing mini cupcakes and birthday napkins to our guests at breakfast. Our volunteers carried on as they do any other day. In a way this simple dedication and the act of showing up is the thing that most impresses me about this program. It is made possible by ordinary people who just show up for one another.

Thank you all for your efforts this year and every year. May we continue to open our doors until the day that no one is in need.
