THE STORY:

In 2001, the St. Paul Players Drama Ministry had a vision to present a live outdoor nativity to those in our community. It quickly became clear that we had to do more. We invite people that are homeless, marginally housed, those struggling with addictions, people recently out of prison and senior citizens to spend the first 3 Saturday’s in December with us at our location at 639 East Long Street, Columbus, Oh. We provide transportation to many of these facilities. We also open our doors to anyone in the community. We serve a hot meal and give away gently used clothes and new hats, gloves, underwear, toys and toiletries. There are many people that go hungry in our community during the holidays. As you are no doubt aware, many of these are children and their mothers, senior citizens and homeless men, women and families who reside in shelters. Needless to say, if these less fortunate people cannot afford to purchase food to eat, then they most certainly cannot afford to purchase the necessary coats, gloves and hats to keep themselves warm. The Miracle on Long Street has made it their mission to offer assistance to those in need by supplying some of these needs, but just as important we offer hope. Each evening, we served between 275 and 300 guests and in the past 13 years we have served close to 14,000 people. In 2013 on the last Saturday of the each month, we opened up our Miracle Clothing Closet and we serve a warm meal. Each year the number of guest we serve increases and in turn so does our budget increases. We raise money for this event through donations and fund raisers. We have worked booths at the Arts Festival and The Jazz and Rib Fest, we have had garage sales and fish fry dinners, Sunday Brunch and the list goes on and on. The event takes place this year on Saturday, December 6th 13th and 20th, between 4 and 8 pm. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities those 3 Saturdays starting at 10am thru 8pm. Individuals and groups are welcome to volunteer. We also welcome musicians that would like to entertain our guests.
