Taft Street Coffee and Ike Recovery Efforts

As we all are very aware, Hurricane Ike hit Houston and the surrounding areas quite hard, leaving a great amount of damage, devastation, and destruction in its wake.  In times like these, people need to step up and do everything within their power and abilities to assist their fellow humans.  In order to do their part in their community, Taft Street Coffee and Ecclesia are providing a host of services for any and all persons affected by Ike.  Starting Tuesday, September 23rd, during normal operating hours, people who have been displaced by Ike and its effects are able to come into the shop for a free meal and some free coffee, a place to charge cell phones and check e-mail, and the chance to soak up a little well-needed air conditioning. Donations are being accepted for these services, but no one will be turned away if they are in need.  The friendly faces and warm smiles of volunteers are also appreciated.

Taft Street Coffee is located at 2115 Taft Street in the Montrose and is open from 8am to 10pm Monday-Friday, 9am to 10pm on Saturday, and 8am to 8pm on Sunday.  All regular activities at the coffee shop look to be resuming this week, so feel free to stop by and settle back into your normal routine with a great latte and some good conversation.
