Find new places to show kindness through serving great coffees and tea. You will find that there are many coffee lovers who are happy to engage in this ministry of making and serving coffees and teas, but also of making conversation and serving through care and attention!
With prior authorization, drive your stocked Salvation Army canteen café and park in business area parking lots, parks, etc., to give away great quality coffee and tea to businesspeople, moms, people spending the day on the street, like people experiencing homelessness, waiting for day labor, and police. Visit a place that would appreciate it—like a fire station or daytime senior center.
We suggest making an initial investment in a sidewalk chalkboard. This will not only advertise why you are there, but will invoke the café atmosphere and invite people to stick around a bit to chat.
This free gift is unexpected and comes from your hands to theirs with the love of Christ. While your community is being changed by your service, the lives of your team and you are being transformed as you work and serve together in deliberate community
