Come to me, all you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. – Matthew 11:28
THE INN located here at Old St. Paul’s is NOW OPEN ALL YEAR thanks to the County of Oxford increasing their support in order to hire full time staff. This wonderful help in no way covers all our needs. Your support of goods, funds, volunteering will be greatly appreciated.
The Inn is a short-term Emergency Shelter accommodation for people who are homeless or in crisis. The Inn is an Operation Sharing program that serves all of Oxford County. The Guests of the Inn receive food, shelter and a safe bed. Along with these basic necessities, Guests are able to access services and supports to assist in their individual needs. It is staffed by both paid and volunteer individuals to recognize and offer specific types of assistance in helping Guests gain self-sufficiency.
The Inn is always in need of the following items:
- Easy to prepare food
- Microwavable items
- Coffee Cream
- Tea & Coffee
- Canned goods
- Cleaning Supplies (dish soap, floor cleaners, cleansing wipes, cleaning cloths, etc)
- XL Garbage Bags
- Laundry Supplies
- Air Fresheners and Sprays
Do You Have Items to Donate?
Donations can be dropped off at the church office during office hours or after 7:30 p.m. by using the “Inn door” at the back of the hall.
(just follow the sidewalk around to the door, the light is on.)
