ST. PAUL SHARES RESOURCES DURING FRIGID TEMPERATURES
During the bitter cold week in mid-January, the need for resources to serve the unsheltered members of our community was tremendous! To help out, the St. Paul Resource Center purchased sleeping bags, blankets, and warm clothing, as well as pulling coats, clothing, and food from our clothes closet and food pantry to share with several organizations that were doing the boots-on-the-ground work to find those in need of shelter. These organizations include Feed Louisville, Care at ASH, UP for Women and Children, and Louisville Outreach for the Unsheltered. Please follow the links to learn more about these wonderful organizations and how you can help support them.
Since we shared resources with these organizations, we are in need of items to restock our clothes closets. We need:
- men’s winter coats and hoodies
- men’s sturdy shoes and boots
- winter gloves, hats, scarves, ear muffs for men and women
- blankets and sleeping bags (gently-used is fine)
- HotHands toe/hand warmers
Please enjoy the following video, which provides an overview of the services provided by the Resource Center, St. Paul’s primary outreach to the community.
The St. Paul Resource Center serves those in need who come to our doors on Monday and Wednesday, 10:00am-1:00pm.
In addition, our Mobile Resource Center takes everyday essentials to those in need. On the second Saturday of every month, we load up the church bus with clothing, shoes, toiletries, and more and take it to Fourth Ave UMC in Old Louisville. During their Open Door Community Ministry, which feeds the food insecure five days per week, we set up our Mobile Resource Center to serve the unhoused and in-need population.
To make your donation shopping a little easier, you can purchase from our wish lists, which will ship the items directly to the church:

We have an ongoing need for:
- New or gently-used t-shirts and seasonal clothing
- Pop-top canned goods
- Individually-wrapped food items, such as fruit cups and peanut butter crackers
- New socks and underwear for both men and women
- Sturdy shoes for both men and women (all sizes, but we tend to run low are large men’s shoes – sizes 12 and up)
- New toiletries, such as soap, body wash, deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste, dental floss, lotion, sunscreen, bug repellent, chapstick (we can use both travel size and regular size for most of these items)
