If you want the experience of your life, and want to share the true meaning of Christmas, coupled with the fact that you have no other plans for Christmas Day, then I urge you to come with me. My daughters and I are having Christmas on Saturday morning, so I've decided to help homeless people on Christmas Day. I've done this in the past, want to have this as our holiday project, since we have no other Christmas charity event planned, and each year the 39+ Holding club ALWAYS does something for the less fortunate.
If you still have blankets, sleeping bags, or jackets that did not "make it" to the Blanket Collection party, please get them to me at any Meet-up between now and then .
In addition, I'd like to take "lunches" to these people, and I noted that probably 90 % were men, but we saw a few women when we went last weekend. These lunches will consist of non-perishable items, and I'd like to throw in a pair of warm socks , or a gift of some kind. If you'd like to help with this project, whether or not you can actually go to the park on Christmas Day, your kindnesses will be appreciated SO much. If you want to donate ca$h, socks, or "lunch items" (tuna salad kits, peanut butter n' crackers, cheese n' crackers, jerky, individual fruit with a pop-top lid, Little Debbie type items, individual chip bags, juice boxes- you probably get the idea), then drop them off at my work or home, or ANY Meet-up between now and then. I will then leave it up to the Powers That Be to sort it out.
Please feel free to ask questions, by e-mail, text, phone, or in person. May you have a Happy Holiday Season .
With much love to ALL,
