of sleeping bags and are now beginning to run low on blankets. with the rain over the last week
combined with the cold and wind, the demand was high. i hope you can help us out and donate
today so we can continue our effort in assisting the homeless. we now need your help to replenish
our winter supplies and effort to help the homeless. we simply cannot do it without your assistance.
in todays world everything involves money. helping the homeless is no exception. my partner
and i had a discussion in the last few weeks about whether or not we could continue without some
relief. the answer, no matter which direction we tried to discuss it, was no. i live on a shoestring and
the person who helps me is unemployed, looking for a job and lives on less. i can't continue using my own resources at this point without jeopardizing my own well being. so we've come to a turning point where we have to decide to keep trying or give up to the fact that we have to suspend our assistance
to the homeless.
we have managed to do what we could over the past months with what we had. but now with the cost of storage, fuel to come and go to the campsites and do some minor nitely homeless searches and outreach and the cost of supplies like blankets, sleeping bags and other things the homeless are requesting from us more frequently, we can no longer keep up with the effort by ourselves. we know we can provide that quick, personal answer that agencies and organizations can't. we know we fill a void in some areas where immediate help is not available, not within the parameters of homeless agencies or can't happen quickly enough to fill the need. but being able to do those things requires funds, funds which we don't have. just to keep operating from now until the late winter. we need to raise money to be able to continue our effort during the cold months ahead. it's not something that can be deferred and hope for the best later on. this is a need we must fill now.
we need your help. go to the donate section or the home page and help us to continue and use our easy paypal system. every amount helps and will go to help the homeless in the area. for now, we keep going on ruthless trust, trust that people like you will help us to continue to help the homeless.
see you around town
