We received over 20 coats this week and they were given right away to the needy in the community. It was hard to believe that in todays times, there are people that are not homeless and they are walking around in freezing weather with a thin coat. Judging from the people who came to our coat giveaway where we gave away over 50 coats, there are plenty of people out there that are still without the proper winter gear.
We also gave away over 10 comforters to several young families who needed them. It appears that winter time brings out the most needy into our distribution center. We gave away all our space heaters and we are in need for many more. I know how uncomfortable it can be to be in an apartment with little or no heat and it hurts me to think that there are so many suffering under these conditions. Many people inform us that they are sleeping in other peoples apartments until they can afford an apartment of their own. So we are providing them with bedding and bedroom storage units so they can organize their clothing.
