Matthew 8:20 Ministry
Our Matthew 8:20 Ministry travels out into the field on Saturday mornings to accommodate those folks that, for one reason or another, cannot make it to The Peter Maurin Center.
Matthew 8:20 is a street ministry that is an outreach of the Peter Maurin Center. Matthew 8:20 volunteers meet every Saturday at 9:00 a.m. to prepare sandwiches, soup, treats, and drinks for the homeless and other poor in Akron. The volunteers arrive downtown at 11:00 a.m. to share this sustenance, as well as provide tents, sleeping bags, blankets, tarps, socks, gloves, hooded sweatshirts, thermal underwear, some hygiene items, and other items to meet basic needs.
One hundred percent of donations go directly to the needy. Matthew 8:20 is completely supported by volunteers. There is no paid staff.
