Serving Locally

Cedar Ridge has an existing long-term partnership with The Salvation Army Grate Patrol, a hands-on, face-to-face experience with people in need.  This is a great thing to do with family, friends, neighbors, or as a Discipleship Group.

On the first Saturday of every month we send small teams to serve the homeless in Washington, DC. We have a tried and tested recipe and shopping list for volunteers to use. The week before a group is scheduled to serve, someone from the group is responsible for getting the supplies from the CRCC outreach closet and for shopping for what is needed to prepare the food. The volunteers then gather at (approximately 2-3pm) in one of their homes to cook and prepare the food. 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)

We could use your help!  Sign up online here.
