How many of you knew that last week(Nov 11-17) was National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.
Why is this week so important?
According to National Alliance to End Homelessness(NAEH) more than 650,000 people EVERY NIGHT have no place to live. Did you know that only half of those are adults, that means the other half are CHILDREN. Imagine 325,000 kids across the US are living on the street.
According to the NAEH, the number one cause of homelessness is lack of affordable housing.
I work everyday to try and help those in need. This thrift store gives away thousands of dollars a year in free clothing,household and furniture to those in need. We do not get reimbursed by anyone. We do it as part of our mission.
This holiday season look into your hearts and find away to help those who have less. You don't have to give away millions (although that would be nice) to make a difference. Every dollar counts.
Here's wishing each of you has a wonderful and happy holiday season.
