We are fundraising to help buy stuff needed by the women experiencing homelessness who will live at our church for a week -- shoes, socks, undies, food, lunch bags, jackets, feminine pads, whatever they need.
New Hanover Presbyterian Church has a history of serving populations which need it most. We believe being homeless is a hard thing, and often it is hard to get help. So, twice a year we house up to 40 women and children who need help. They stay with us for a week, and we take care of all their needs. During the day, they go back out into the streets, or to a job, or to school. But from 7 pm to 7 am we get to take care of them. And we mean to say it just that way: "We GET to take care of them." This service is singularly the most uplifting thing we organizers do all year. I hope you'll join in the joy.
