We will once again go out and help the homeless..... We had agreed to meet at the same place.... 14th and K st in Washington, DC.
I would like to believe we had a great time last month and hope this time we have an even better turn out.
It was unreal how the people really wanted clothing. Some could have cared less that we had food, the clothing table was their main focus. So I have been rounding up clothing and doing laundry so that it would be clean. Used, but clean. I have asked my co-workers to donate things as well. Remember, we can use anything you are not wearing or using anymore. Backpacks were requested the most.
I talked with a few of the homeless people and they really need soap, lotion, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, mouthwash and other things we sometimes take for granted. I made a few of these "travel" packages and bought a few already made. Remember, the dollar store can be someone's best friend.
I want to also thank everyone who has help before. Thank you for donating your time and clothing. Thank you for taking time out of your busy life to help someone less fortunate than you. We are all blessed to be helping our fellow man.
Hope to see you there!
