Lunch On Us (L.O.Us) – 6th and Warner
“I was hungry and you fed me.” — John and Susan Long are inspired to feed the hungry on the west side of Guthrie. On Monday through Friday, folks line up for lunch from 10:30 to 12:30 — at 414 N. 6th Street (the building behind Grace Covenant Church). They offer a hot meal, sack lunch, showers and information to the working poor and homeless in our community.
If you would like to donate to this effort, please contact John or Susan at 405-205-5677, or simply click on the Donate button and designate your offering to L.O.Us. If you would like to volunteer, feel free to call them to offer that as well. Special thanks to all charitable donors.
