2017 is Here and we are counting our blessings - St Kenneth's for their financial support that will help us with truck costs and Our Lady of Sorrows and the 85 Santa Shoppers who provided the much needed kitchen items, towels and sheets.  We are off to a good start this year so keep the prayers and well wishes coming.  I am off to find pillows and mattress sets.  More to come.

This outreach has changed over the past ten years with who we serve and who serves.  It was started as two women and a truck to three women and 2 guys at our peak.  Now we are one women with a full time job as a road warrior and 2 guys that we were able to help that are able to give back.  We are a small force but able to make a difference in so many lives.  Downtown is changing with the new stadium coming.  The landlords are rebuilding and raising rents which will force many back out on the streets or to move from their homes. Affordable housing is a great concern.

Feeling like there is something you should be doing or missing out ?  Volunteer.  You could be the one who puts together the silverware sets, the wash cloth kits, manages the list, follows up on email requests.  Lots of ways to help and we need it now more than ever.  The way to change for the better is to take that one step towards providing hope.
Clean Out your linen closet , kitchen cabinets and basements- Loose the Clutter. You will feel better when you donate the excess to those in need.

Spring Cleaning and Garage Sale Season are Here.  Are there items in your home you no longer need or items you found you have to many of?  Check our List and see if you can help some one who has very little. Home Decor is always needed to dress up an apartment.

 Beds are always needed.

 The hygiene kits are in need of small toothpastes - if you would like to help with this feel free to make a donation or contact me to arrange a pick up.

Keep you prayers coming for this ministry - every little bit helps.

Our team now represents several states helping with donated yarns and projects from washcloths to scarfs to blankets.  If you like to knit/crochet or have yarn scraps we would be more than happy to accept the help.  Not ready to make a large time commitment to a project or have a small group in need of a project?  We are looking for pot holders - this easy project takes only a few days and hours to do.

Donations can come in all shapes and sizes.  We are registered with Ebay, PayPal, Lion Brand, Smile.Amazon.  When shopping or selling - Keep us in mind.
