Collection for the Homeless

In honoring the Spirit of Giving that comes with the Christmas Season, during Advent we have been collecting socks, underwear and warm coats for homeless people in our community.  Socks are often listed as the #1 need for homeless people, and the importance of a warm coat cannot be understated.  We have been blessed with a rainy winter so far which is desperately needed after the last few dry years that we have had, but the wet and cold weather is very hard on those without a roof over their head.  We need to remember those less fortunate than ourselves, as Jesus said in Matthew 25:40 "Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me."  We will continue this special collection throughout Advent and then work with various local charities to make sure these life-sustaining gifts reach those most in need.  And a big Thank You! to all who have donated so far!
