Good People, Good People, Good Day
Jobs Shelters of the Sierra (JSS) is as busy as ever each week providing for our homeless population with provisions, support, love, and understanding. Ron Sachs can’t do it alone, his old body just ain’t what it used to be, and resources are thinning out. In any case we have great news.
JSS has been given an opportunity to build the JSS Supply Closet at the new Community Resource Center to replace the one we were locked out of at Perks Court. Yes, an 8 foot by 14 foot building being built by John D’Agostini, a member of our advisory board, and a bunch of his pals. With this collection and distribution Supply Closet, close to the center of the homeless population in Placerville, we can serve, our citizens who are in need with sox, toilet paper, clothing, hygiene supplies, etc. as we have always done and also be at a location that the homeless citizens can receive counseling, access to job opportunities, physical and mental problems addressed, and we pray, assist them to elevate themselves out of homelessness.
But we need the lumber, nails, and roofing materials to do this. $1,220.63. That is what Home Depot said we need to build this unit. Yes, I asked Home Depot for a donation, but that went nowhere. Now I am asking you to help us get this building built.
Your donation will be tax deductible and you will receive a letter to that effect when your donation is received. I pray you will follow through and help us build this unit. We need this unit up and going by mid August. We will need volunteers to help supervise its operation after we get open. Step up, step in, and participate.
