You Can Make a Difference!
Women on Mission is sponsoring a church-wide effort to collect supplies for washing clothing for the homeless. The supplies (detergent, dryer sheets, baking soda, vinegar) will be donated to The Daybreak Center. Daybreak is located near Central City Park and is a center where the homeless can go to get out of the rain and cold, have their clothing washed and make use of other services to enrich homeless individuals lives. Collection boxes are located in the hallways near the parlor and upper level elevator.
The Jim Dandies' January program was especially interesting and moving. A Sole Hope volunteer told the group about efforts to provide shoes for individuals in Uganda. Devastating diseases and parasites enter a person's body through the feet. Sole Hope collects used blue jeans to provide to the Ugandans for the manufacture of shoes. They have asked for our help in collecting used blue jeans. If you wish to donate, they can be placed in the bins with the Daybreak Center donations.
