Nomadic Shelter is now underway for the winter months.
The Shelter has just completed our first week of operation. However, only 5 nights are covered.
Adjusting, tweaking, major and minor changes all take place during the first two weeks of operation. Confusion galore and What Now?? Prevail. A very big smile needs to be persistent.
Thank you, each and everyone who volunteers at their church and those who travel between churches volunteering. You are truly a blessing.
JSS needs to clothe these persons who we host at our churches. Wet weather will now prevail, and the 100’s of ponchos, dry socks, toilet paper and other necessities have to be gathered or purchased. And needed: Warm clothing such as “Hoodies,” Jackets, Sweat Shirts, in Larg, X-Larg, XX-Larg. The homeless “layer” their clothing. Jeans or “work pants” only, in sizes 32”, 34”, 36”. Most of the homeless population do not wear shirts with collars.
JSS picks up donations on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays in the Cameron Park/El Dorado Hills area and at Foothills UMC at Cameron Park/Rescue. (Do not drop off clothing at Foothill UMC on Mondays.) Placerville area can be picked up almost any time. Contact Ron@JobsShelters.Org for a pick-up.
Another way you can help out Job’s Shelters of the Sierra without any expense to you is when shopping at Amazon.Com, you connect to “Smile.Amazon.” This is how you do that: On the internet, type in: HTTP://Smile.Amazon.com/ch/26-1384622 hit “Enter.” After AmazonSmile appears on your screen, go to the top, right corner of your screen and click on the little star. When the screen appears, delete all the wording EXCEPT “Amazon.Com Smile”. Then move down and click on “Tool Bar.” “Amazon.Com Smile” will now be on your tool bar for your convenience. Yes, you will have to again set up your password etc. again. But Amazon will send a donation to JSS for each of your purchases. And JSS thanks you!
A big THANK YOU to the TahoeWarmRoom for helping me get this out to you. This issue would not be going out without their help.
