Homeless Issue #83
“Ron, this year since the Shelter ended, JSS has provided tents and/or sleeping bags to 76 homeless persons. This is amazing! This information shows what a valuable resource JSS is and that it is only accomplished through donations from people who care.
The other Churches in the Nomadic Shelter did not continue to contribute, but JSS provided some continuum of services after the shelter ended. Three days a week. JSS is like a lifeline to the homeless. JSS is there 12 months a year, shelter or no shelter!Christ Like Services, Green Valley Saturday Cafe and FAITH are the only other resources available to single homeless persons on an annual basis that I am personally aware of.
Just my two cents worth!
Thank you Jan. And God has blessed us all, the “givers” and the “receivers.”
Speaking of the Nomadic Shelter and the up-coming “winter months,” planning has begun, and the following notice, is very important. PLEASEattend.
There will be a fundraiser to generate the money that is necessary to get the Nomadic Shelter up and running and to also keep it going for the allotted time. Now recognizing “that a camel is a horse put together by a committee,” the committee can’t, or did not inform me, after many requests, of when, how much, etc. it will take place. I understand that it will be held at the Federated Church.
Remember to attend and support this effort when and if you hear about it. You can send a check to the JSS address below with a note that the donation is for the Nomadic Shelter.
