Caring Committee Activities


Show Me Dharma will again be sponsoring the evening meal at Loaves and Fishes, 702 Wilkes Boulevard, Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church, on Wednesday, Feb. 28. The theme is Mexican food this month. We would like people to sign up for one or more slots using Sign Up Genius at this URL:

Those who sign up for the main dish are asked to provide 20 servings of some sort of Mexican main dish, e.g. enchiladas, burritos, tacos, etc. Side dishes can be Mexican beans, rice, Queso cheese sauce, chips, etc., and vegetables can be of any variety or cold salads, and any sort of dessert is acceptable.

We ask that volunteers who want to help serve and clean up arrive at 4, and those dropping off food to do so no later than 4:30 pm at the rear entrance. With many people staying to help clean up, we were able to have everything finished before 7 pm last month.

We want to thank the many volunteers from our sangha who participated in this project in January. We had a wonderful experience. It went very smoothly and it felt so good to be of service to the community in this way.

If you have any questions, please call Patricia Riely at (573) 999-6635 or email

2) Donate for Puerto Rico: Our sangha is also organizing to support our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico who continue to deal with the devastation following Hurricane Maria.
We have already sent 180 lamps to families in Western PR.  They were VERY GRATEFULLY received and more families have asked if more are available.
You may sponsor a solar lamp for $10 or help us sponsor a full solar setup for a sustainable farm in Western Puerto Rico.
You can make a one time payment  using Click & Pledge or Paypal
