WARM BLANKETS, GLOVES, HATS, AND SCARFS FOR THE HOMELESS
Organized by: Myra Jammer
*******DONATIONS NEEDED****** WARM BLANKET, GLOVES, SCARFS, AND BEANIE HATS FOR THE HOMELESS: My name is Pastor Myra Jammer. I have a ministry here in Gainesville Florida that ministers to the homeless .... The winter is rapidly approaching and I think of those who are homeless at Grace Marketplace Shelter who sleep outside on the ground or in tents and I can't help but worry that they will not be warm all winter long. One night, I decided to sleep outside with them because I wanted to feel what they were going through one winter, and it was sad. Many people were cold. Some nights they can go to a hotels when the temperatures are below 40 degrees, but what about when the temperatures are below 50 and 60 and 65 degrees. They are cold. Many homeless people also have health conditions that can cause pneumonia and bronchitis and many other respiratory ailments that break my heart. I knew one homeless resident who had HIV and the doctor advised her to stay away from weather such as cold air, but she had no home and even more so, no warmth. In the process she developed pneumonia 3 times that winter, and her last bout, she lost. She died. She died from the pneumonia. Yes, maybe some of there life circumstances could have been prevented, but I think having HIV is a really big deal and who knows why she was homeless, but she deserves warmth too. I just ask the Lord often to give me the opportunity to minister to the homeless and help change their space just a little bit. I love people, but I really have a heart for those who may have fallen on hard times for one reason or another. I just want to be a blessing to them. I ask the Lord to help me - help them. Will you help? Please help with any donations. SN: Many know that my heart is to help all people. I would never cheat God or His people. God bless those who have a heart to give and do and those who want to and cannot, and those who do not want to. AMEN.
