During the holidays, we celebrate our blessings. We gather with friends and family around tables overflowing with food. We give gifts to those we want to honor and thank.  We mark our holy days with decorations, parties, and special worship services.  We remember how blessed we are.

Here at Stewpot, we serve people who live at the edges of this abundance. Not having enough of this world’s goods, they rely on the generosity of others to secure basic things like food, shelter and clothing. Isolated by their station in life, they rely on the hospitality of places like Stewpot to find welcome and belonging.

     This holiday season, you can help those living on the margins by making a gift to Stewpot. A donation to Stewpot ensures a hot meal, safe shelter and warm clothing for men, women and children in need. It helps provide important supportive services like counseling, health services, art therapy, and legal aid to those who need it most.

     Through our Spirit of Giving alternative gift campaign, you can make a donation in honor or in memory of your friends and loved ones.

When you send your donation to Stewpot with your list of honorees, Stewpot will send a special holiday card, on your behalf, acknowledging that a donation has been made in their honor. You will receive a letter thanking you for your donation and that can be used for tax purposes.  You can use the enclosed page or fill out our online form.

Stewpot exists because people like you want those who live on the margins to know that they are not forgotten.

This holiday season, please consider honoring your loved ones and remembering those in need through a gift to Stewpot.  In doing so, you will ensure that, in the words of the Christian Scriptures, “those who have little do not have too little.”

Grace and Peace,
