Winter season feels extra-long when you are living on the streets or sleeping in a car. Imagine not having food and trying to find hope. Hungry homeless people need your help.
We will be using your donations to purchase, prepare, and distribute with dignity and respect high-quality, nutritious, home cooked meals (including Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day meals) and care packages called Blessing Bags to our communities’ homeless without a shelter in Old Colorado City, Manitou Springs, and Colorado Springs, Colorado USA.
This fundraising project is to help us purchase, prepare, cook, and deliver hot stew and sandwich meals as well as create and distribute essential Blessing Bags backpacks for homeless men, women, children & pets living on the streets.
Our work will be on-going and not just seasonal! We’ve been doing this on our own for weeks.
My hope is to remind our homeless neighbors that they do matter and that they are not invisible – no matter how many people walk, drive, or bike past them during these upcoming Holidays.
This fundraiser will help to feed them with mobile hot lunches and dinners which include free bowls of homemade stew, assorted sandwiches, spring water, tea, homemade dessert and lots of hugs, love, and compassion!
WHY? BECAUSE I believe that our community (beginning with my family) needs to be an integral part of the systemic solution to homelessness and poverty.
Seeing makes a difference. Giving feels good. The least we can do is provide a hot healthy meal and the bare human necessities to people living and sleeping rough in and around Colorado Springs.
This project is especially created for those struggling with homelessness, depression or addiction, domestic violence or abuse, pstd veterans, people coping with loss, trauma survivors or anyone else that is hungry and needs a hot meal, some necessary supplies and a hug.
