Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday about 40 needy folks are lined up waiting for help at the Guild of St. George. Even though $700 is allocated each day for financial assistance in deposits, etc. some people must be turned away due the sheer number of clients. The doors open at 9:00 a.m.but many times the day's financial allocation is completely gone within an hour and a half.
Nearly every penny contributed to the Guild goes directly to those in need. In fact $.98 out of every $1.00 goes directly to client assistance. In 2006 $7,300 per month was spent helping the needy in Oklahoma City. St. Paul's Cathedral provides the space and utilities free of charge and all workers are volunteers.
Won't you look into your heart as well as your bank account and help slay the dragon of poverty?
The Guild of St. George opens at 9:00 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and will stay open until noon if funds permit.
