Cedar Ridge has an existing long-term partnerships with The Salvation Army Grate Patrol, a hands-on, face-to-face experiences with people in need. This is a great things to do with family, friends, neighbors and/or as a Disicipleship Group.
On the first Saturday of every month we send small teams to serve at The Salvation Army Grate Patrol.
While the Grate Patrol project involves a little more time, we have a tried and tested recipe and shopping list for volunteers to use. The week before a volunteer group is scheduled to serve, someone from the group is responsible for getting the supplies from the CRCC outreach closet and shop for what is needed to prepare the food. The volunteer group then gathers in one of their homes prepare the food by 2-3 PM on their assigned Saturday. Afterwards, a team of 3-5 people head down to Washington, DC NE by 6 PM to meet Grate Patrol staff and begin delivering food. The project wraps up by about 8–9 PM. (This is appropriate for elementary school ages and up, with adult supervision)
