St. Paul's Episcopal Church recently helped the Time Out Shelter of Payson and Payson Helping Payson, both of which are charitable organizations assisting those in need in the Payson area. Total amount donated by the Ladies of St. Paul organization was $1,300.
The money was raised at a cowboy dinner in August at Rumsey Park, with entertainment by Sue Becker. The dinner consisted of cowboy beans, pulled pork, a salad, coleslaw, dessert and refreshments. The activity was attended by at least hundred people.
The Ladies of St. Paul organized the Cowboy Dinner and brought a chef up from the Valley to prepare, cook and serve the pulled pork.
Time Out is a shelter for victims of domestic violence, including physical emotional and sexual abuse. The shelter offers a safe place to live until they can find a different and safe environment. Payson Helping Payson also works closely with the local St. Vincent de Paul food bank and that group’s parallel program that pays crucial bills, including rent.
Both Payson Helping Payson and St. Vincent de Paul do home visits and take other steps to make sure their money goes to people with a real need. This means the money donated from the Ladies of St. Paul, to these organizations will be used at a local level.
