BENEFITING: Salt Outreach Inc
In surveying the homeless downtown, we have met homeless individuals who earnestly want to get off of the streets who have not had access to a shower for over 3 months. Imagine how it might feel to sleep on the street and not have showered for 3 months?! SALT's Homeless Outreach, My Brothers Keeper, aims to make a difference in the lives of our homeless friends by meeting their needs, empowering them, and creating genuine friendships. On any given day their are 10,000 homeless in the central florida area and only at best 2,000 beds, if we can't find shelter for our friends the least we can do is provide hygiene resources and clothing, in order to equip them to not only feel better about themselves but also be able to find employment.
How Will It Work
The shower trailer will have 3 bathrooms with each bathroom including a shower, a sink, and a mirror. Working in partnership with our clothing trailer, "Change", our homeless friends would be able to get cleaned up on the shower trailer and then get changed in the clothing trailer and be able to go to an interview. This we pray is just the beginning of what we can do for our homeless friends!
The total for the shower trailer will be $35,000, it will be custom made. A donor and his family who wish to remain anonymous have committed $17,500 to the shower trailer project! They will be donating $17,500 once we raise the first $17,500. So it is crucial that we raise the first half to take advantage of this blessing that God has provided!
