Also comment if you will be bringing supplies, so we can make sure all the essentials are covered.

    What a great experience!! Thursday was the first time I had ever volunteered to help the homeless and I feel very blessed for being involved. Even though the homeless are in a bad situation out there, the volunteers bring this hope and love to their lives. It was an amazing to see first hand!!! Also, thank you to all the volunteers for making me feel so comfortable. You all are great!

    Last night was another great evening with friends. Through the highs and lows in life that we all endure, being there for one another is a very important part of it all. This experience blesses me every time I participate. As we help out our displaced friends, I hope they know how much they have helped us, the volunteers, in return just by being there. When you look into their eyes you experience something that cannot be expressed in words. There is something simply beautiful about seeing the smiles on everyone's faces as they converse and share. Thanks to everyone. Have a blessed day everyone!

    Hi everyone! Our friends are in need of a few tents, preferably 8 man or bigger. However, any tent would be helpful. If anyone has any connections on getting a tent, let us know. Let's see if we can provide our friends with a dry place to sleep:)

      Please Share!! $5000 will go a long way towards better conditions for our friends.
      Also, if you have any photos that I can post (with permission) for our cause, GoFundMe will make the page live to the Public, not just to those we have shared with. Blessings!
