We have been doing this in our community for quite a long time. We used to feed the homeless in the park, until Florida made that a crime.
We have local venues and pantries where we feed the needy and we make available, care packages that take care of hygiene and comfort needs. We provide help with job resumes and proper clothing for job hunting.
The sad thing is that the number of the needy is growing. We have even a had a couple families that used to give and volunteer, end up among the numbers of the needy.
I am so proud to say that both families were taken in by kind volunteers and provided help getting back on their feet. We have an elderly gentleman that couldn't just take the meals we provided him. He insisted on helping out with anything he could find around the center that needed to be done. We couldn't stop him from picking up and emptying trash, wiping down tables. He has become a very valued helper.
We can all do something. We never know when we may need help ourselves.
