  • People Who Love People

    Starting out as a calling to share with Plano homeless and food insecure residents, following observations made by CRUMC members during the Point-in-Time Homeless Count, People Who Love People has grown and needs your help!  We share a meal with our friends near the Plano Day Labor Center every Monday and Thursday morning, as well as provide nonperishable food that can help during the week.  We also take care of other needs such as toiletries, clothing, conversation and prayers!

    Come join the party and share the love of Jesus!  We gather in the corner of the DART parking lot, just south of the Day Labor Center located at 805 Ozark Drive.  We meet at 7:30am, serve and share fellowship, and we’re usually done by 8:15am.  Feel free to come to the site and see what’s going on, you’ll be hooked!

    Would you like to donate?  Click on the sign-up genius link below for more information!  You can have donations delivered to the addresses listed or bring donations to the site.

    Our friends constantly need the following:  men’s gently-used shirts and jeans/pants, belts, sneakers, boots, backpacks/tote bags and luggage with wheels.  They always need NEW underwear and socks, NEW work gloves, toiletry items, and snack items.  We also collect Bibles, Bible study workbooks, and devotionals in both English and Spanish.  Non-perishable food and new/gently-used clothing can be brought to the People Who Love People donation bin in the Mission Donation area.
