Operation Leftover

 Next “Roll Out” is the 3rd Thursday of the month @ 6:30pm, meet at St. John the Evangelist Church

Future dates:  Every third Thursday of the month unless otherwise noted!

Help serve the homeless in the downtown Indianapolis area!  Roll out with food, drinks, info pamphlets, and a willing spirit to meet the homeless where they are at.

More and more every day, God calls us to be disciples to the people around us—classmates, co-workers, and even strangers we encounter on the street. Operation Leftover offers an opportunity to meet and socialize with the homeless and impoverished in Indianapolis. Once a month, Operation Leftover gathers food, secondhand clothing, and other toiletries to distribute to those in need in the downtown Indianapolis area.

Contact Andrew Costello @ operationleftover@gmail.com for more information.

During a “Rollout,” we hit the streets of Indianapolis and socialize with those who may be impoverished or whose basics needs are not being met.  By providing fellowship, sharing faith, and providing resources to our brothers and sisters out on the street, we can empower them to get to where they need to be. Here are the details:

Things to bring:

  • Blankets
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Any grocery bags (plastic, paper, or cloth) that you want to get rid of
  • Bottled Water/Gatorade
  • Any homemade food or fast food (e.g. Little Caesar’s, Subway, etc.) that you wish to distribute
  • Chips/Light snacks
  • Toilet Paper
  • Trash bags
  • Pillows
  • Sleeping bags

“This is a great honor, and I wanted to thank all of your for your hard work, support, prayer, encouragement, and dedication to Operation Leftover and what we strive to accomplish. This ministry is a team effort, and without your assistance and the grace of God, it would not have lasted this long. Some of you travel long and far to attend out outreach efforts, and all of you carve time out of your busy schedules to gather donations or join us when we are on the streets. So thank you, thank you, thank you for your continued support of Operation Leftover. I have even more confidence now that God approves of this ministry, and I am excited to see how it will continue to evolve. May God bless you all abundantly for your generosity towards the poor of Indianapolis!” – Andrew
