Helping Others

If most of you are like me, you have a warm home and food to eat. It's a normal part of daily life. It doesn't matter if it's sunny and 75 or rainy and 35, you're comfortable.
There are people in this world, in our nation, in your town that aren't as fortunate as you and I. We recently had a Crescent City homeless woman die out in the cold the other night. It was about 32 degrees that night and she was sleeping in the bushes. They found her the next morning. It just breaks my heart that there are folks that have no shelter to come in out of the cold.
A local ministry here in Crescent City has rented out a large room at the fairgrounds and has offered it to anyone needing shelter, a warm shower and a place to sleep until December 31st. I can only imagine the cost of all of this. I can only think, also, of all the lives that may possibly be saved by this kind gesture.
Would you like to help? You can! Even if you can't donate your time, you can help by donating funds. Even $5 is helpful! Their web site is: and you can easily donate money through PayPal.
Please think this winter of all of those less fortunate than we are and help out in any way you can!
