This is Maria, and she is taking up a collection of clothing, blankets, coats and goods that her local homeless community can use. Maria is a friend of mine who enjoys going that extra mile for others, including strangers. The help which she provided for our Guatemala Eyeglass Collection was immeasurable! Now Maria took it upon herself to start up a collection for the homeless people living in what is termed “Tent City” in Lakewood, N.J. These people have lost jobs and work, and have found themselves homeless, living in a make shift development of tents located in a wooded area.
Thanks Maria for being such a positive influence by showing what the power of one person can do to help other people!
Why not seek out your local homeless shelter or food bank, perhaps a local church which assists the homeless. Homelessness affects every state in our nation, so I am sure that if you seek out the less fortunate in your own communities you will find them. Lend a hand, lend an ear, share unwanted blankets, boots and coats. Volunteer one day a month at the food bank. It means so much to those in need, and it will bring you much gratification!
Be kind and be ready because kindness is contagious…kindness is addictive.
