St. Luke’s Community Fund
The St. Luke’s Community Fund is a designated fund to support outreach in our larger Woodland community. The fund offers financial support to community projects that seek to help the hungry, homeless and impoverished in our area.
One-hundred percent of the money collected by the St. Luke’s Community Fund is distributed directly to projects helping those in need, in Woodland and our neighboring communities.
Our current projects include:
Women’s Winter Shelter
During the cold, rainy season this winter, St. Luke’s partners with Fourth and Hope, the Woodland Ecumenical and Multi-faith Ministries, The City of Woodland and Yolo County to provide a winter shelter for women and families. The St. Luke’s Community Fund helps support the operation costs of the shelter. In 2017 the shelter operated for 4 weeks with 20 beds available every night. In 2018, the shelter plans to run for 8 weeks.
Heatwave Water Distribution
Each summer when the temperatures soar over 100 degrees, The St. Luke’s Community Fund collects donations of water bottles and funding for ice and distributes them to community members living on the streets of Woodland, staving off the threat of dehydration that affects so many of the homeless in this area.
