Thinking about volunteering at the Canteen Run? We would love it if you would join us.  Here is what you do:

We go out 4 times/week to feed the homeless and those living at or below poverty level.  We have shirts, blankets, underwear, socks, toiletries, and in the winter we offer coats, hats, gloves, and scarves.  The two most important items that we provide is prayer and information on where they can get help.  We have a list of social and counseling, places that can help with utilities or rent. We'll spend some time with that person asking them about their life and what is their immediate need.

  1. Sunday, 3:00-5:00
  2. Monday, 6:30-8:30 or 9:00
  3. Tuesday, 6:30-8:30 or 9:00
  4. Thursday, 6:30-8:30 or 9:00
(if we are busy with quantity of guests or if someone needs more time to give them information the they need)

We leave from The Salvation Army on Market St. at 6:30 and on Sundays at 3:00.  You should be there at least 15 minutes before we leave.  We stop at:

  1. Illinois Terminal
  2. Westside Park
  3. Catholic Worker House
  4. Campus
  5. Urbana Library
