Reaching Out

We are all just a situation away from becoming homeless.

We do not see a lot of homeless people where we live but we know that there are many people living on the streets.  We will see these people on our journey.  We want to reach out to them.  We want them to feel God’s love.

Although it is just a drop in the bucket…we are going to bless 30 people.  We are putting together backpacks filled with survival items.  If this project touches your heart we invite you to participate.  We are including a detailed list of items that we require.  We will need these items in our possession by October 1st, 2016.  If you see something on our list that you would like to commit to providing, please contact us with the item and how many you would like to provide.  Once we have a commitment on an item we will write the word “done” beside it so that people reading this will know what is still needed.  We also don’t want to end up with too many of any one item.  Obviously this will be more possible for people who live near us.

Please note:  Clothing items should be size medium-large and all toiletries should be small or travel size and in plastic containers.  Some clothing items can be second hand but must be clean and in excellent condition.  Nothing fancy or designer as this will put the recipient in danger of theft or assault.
