Help the homeless suffering in the heat on Aug. 26.
"Maggie" looks hungry and bruised every time the Rooftop Homeless Outreach team meets her on the streets.
They often see her in the summer months, usually after she's been beaten. She is quiet, humble, and never demands a handout. Team members give her food, clothing and other blessings that Rooftoppers have donated to the ministry.
"She is always grateful," said Justin Stone, the homeless Outreach director. "Sometimes the look in her eye speaks volumes and moves me to tears."
Meetings with friends like "Maggie" make the team want to do more. That's why they are hosting the Summer Relief Event, on Monday, Aug. 26. You can donate items for the operation or see first-hand what our ministry can accomplish. We're looking for more volunteers to serve that night. Meet at the church at 6 pm to carpool downtown.
"We want to ask everyone to get on board and serve with us," Stone said. Questions? Email Justin Stone at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or use the form below to RSVP.
Here's the donations we need for the event. Drop them in the Homeless Outreach bins off the church lobby.
Small hand towels
New underwear (boxers for men, underwear for women)
Tuna & cracker combo packs
Various pop top food items
Small bags of chips
