Covington, La. – To highlight the increasing challenges facing foster children in our area, particularly teens who are transitioning out of the system, Dr. Michael Sprague (Louisiana State Chaplain, Capitol Commission) and Judge Scott Gardner (22nd Judicial District Court, Division G) are leading the charge with James Samaritan and two dozen local pastors to educate the faith-based community about the hurdles these youth face and to mobilize forces to strengthen a local mentoring program.

A Pastors’/Leaders’ Gathering will be held on Tuesday, April 20, from 1:30-2:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church Covington, and the event is open to pastors, church members, and anyone else in the community who would like to learn more. Registration is required.

Attendees will hear from Judge Gardner and James Samaritan staff about the critical needs of the foster care system and the children and youth it serves. Perhaps most important, they will share information about Open Table, a proven mentoring program facilitated by local nonprofit James Samaritan, an organization that supports and empowers children and families in foster care.

Open Table is a program that trains small groups of volunteers to form a support family, or “table,” whose members use their vocational and life experiences as tools to assist marginalized youth who are transitioning out of foster care and accept the offer to join a “table.” Youth as young as 17 use these tools and relationships to develop life skills and achieve life goals while also learning to trust adults who are committed to their well-being. By participating, the youth are more likely to avoid human trafficking, substance abuse, homelessness, and unemployment.

“If people of good faith and goodwill come together in trust-filled relationships, it will be possible to solve this crisis. Please come to this event to learn how you can be part of the solution,” Sprague said.

For more information or to register for the April 20 event, email Dr. Sprague at mdsprague00@bellsouth.net. If registering more than one person, please include the names and email addresses of all in the party.

Community Gardens Feed the Community

Published by:

A few years ago Pamela McKay began preparing meals for those in our area in need – poor, homebound, homeless, disabled and / or seniors. She started on a 4 burner electric cooktop with food donated by stores and restaurants.

Pamela McKay cooks for those who need food.

One morning a break-out group from Leadership St. Tammany assisted her with meal prep. With Pastor Jay Graves help, Pamela was moved into the kitchen facilities of Hosanna Lutheran Church. Today, with a little help from some friends, she cooks and delivers over 200 meals every Wednesday to Slidell, Abita Springs, Mandeville, Covington and Tangi … quite a chore, quite a feat.

The most immediate need is someone with basic internet skills to setup “Sign-Up” Genius, then check with Pamela on a weekly basis posting what help is needed. Sidenote: The great thing about this is a person working from home could make a huge difference and never leave the house. Reply to this e-mail if interested.

Volunteers are welcome on Wednesdays from 9:00am to 1:00pm at Hosanna Lutheran Church in Mandeville – food prep, cooking, packaging, cleaning, labelling. There is also a need for volunteers to deliver the meals.

Volunteer Betty Brock helps in the kitchen. Betty also mentors youth through food service with the Yum Yum Gimme Sum Food Truck.

All are invited to Covington’s Community Garden (corner Jackson and 30th Avenue) on Friday mornings (9:00am start) to “get your hands dirty.” Food raised from the garden will go this ministry.

High Priority: Refrigeration storage for donated items. Pamela’s prayer is a kitchen location where perishables can be both stored and prepared.

Pamela can be reached at 985-237-3138 or on Facebook Messenger Pamela Onmygrind McKay. Or you can reply to me via this e-mail.

This information is from Mayor Mark’s email blast. Thank you Mayor Mark, for the good information! Sign up for Mayor Mark’s email blast at the city’s website, covla.com
