I got up early to write like I normally do, and I could not stop thinking about all the men and women who I encountered downtown who do not have anywhere to stay at night (my homeless friends).
Why? Because it is freezing cold! As I lay in my warm bed, I am uncomfortable at the same time. It bothers me that some of my friends do not have anywhere to go, and that some do not have enough blankets, socks, and other items to keep them from freezing to death. While thinking about this harsh reality, I am pained with this gut-wrenching question,
“How many homeless people die during the winter because they lack shelter or blankets?”
Looking at the temperature on google does not make it any better this morning…
The other day #lovebeyondwalls took firewood to many of my friends under the bridge because of how cold it was!
With that being said, our team will be going out every night this week to distribute blankets, socks, and identify places where our friends can find shelter.
If you have any blankets, or would like to partner please contact us [HERE].
We’d love to meet you, work with you, and help spread warmth during this cold winter season!
