Over the next few days we are anticipating more of the cold wet days that have wreaked havoc on so many this winter season. Our warming center expects to see hundreds people this week alone. Without warming centers such as ours and others throughout the area our homeless friends would be in direct danger of death from exposure in these dangerous temperatures, it’s for this reason that we are appealing to all of you to help us address an urgent need, boots and restaurant gift cards.
Last month when the weather got so bad we were able to purchase sleeping bags for all of our homeless friends. Once again we want to offer hope and resources to keep our homeless neighbors alive. Through some of our partnerships with various vendors we can purchase a high-quality, durable boots suitable for these low temperatures for each of our guests this evening for under $20 each. There are others who do not need boots, but could use access to a warm meal and a warm place to stay for a short period of time. For them we will be giving out $10 cards to local restaurants. This way they can buy a meal and stay a while in a warm place. We can provide all of our guests these valuable items for less than $2,500, so that’s our goal. We can do this, if you’d like to make a donation toward this cause, please click on the donate button below to make your tax deductible donation. It’s not very often that we are able to have a life-saving impact on others for less than a price of dinner.
