We are still working toward our goal of organizing emergency temporary shelter, for this winter, in a nearby county that does not have a homeless shelter. We are asking 7 churches in that community to pick a day of the week that they will host, through the months of Jan. and Feb., when the temperatures drop to freezing. We are set to meet with the pastors of that community again on Oct. 28th. and get things in place. Our goal is to provide blankets to the churches hosting as emergency shelters, and hopefully, provide some of the mats. I believe all the needs will be met to make this needed operation work. Simply because….it is the right thing to do!
We are fortunate to have so many women, both local and long distance, who use their time, talents, and resources to help us to help others. Without further adieu, I would like to post photos of all the recent gifts of love that have been donated.
