Good morning,  I hope you are all well!happy face


 Tomorrow and Saturday, August 16 and 17,  a fundraiser will be held at Palmer Park Walmart from 9 am-5 pm. Palmer Park WalmartWe need to collect donations so that we can hold our next food give-a-way, the last one occurred on May 30th. DSCN0774 To do that, we rely on donations from good hearted people like yourselves.  Now, a salesman, I am not. I’m an eternal optimist and I  trust that people will  give us  the funds we need to collect but I also know that we’re in a bad economy (not as bad as it WAS, but still bad) and some, if not most, people are just trying to feed their families. HOWEVER, there ARE people who can help and do not. Like any state, there are super poor people- and super RICH people. It’s hard for people with money to let money out of their hands because they come to trust the “security” in having wealth AND riches (not necessarily the same thing). Those are the people I am asking to step forward to help. They can afford it; they need to help. If I can work for free (except for TANF and Food Stamps), than they can step forward to help those who are down and out. And there are a LOT of homeless people in Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs and the surrounding areas. We help them ALL- we do not just focus our attention on one place. Colorado Springs has a lot of food pantries – the surrounding areas, including Manitou Springs, do not and we want to be available to help and assist all who need. The community that is Colorado Springs, can help, and we pray they will. ***Also remember that everything helps us- 1 Cent is as valuable as 1 Dollar; and that is NOT cliche!***

**** REMEMBER THIS: WE ALWAYS ARE OPEN TO IN-KIND DONATIONS AND WE ESPECIALLY NEED MEAT…CHICKEN BEING THE MOST IMPORTANT, as well as hot dogs and other meats and vegetables that can be used quickly. You will be given or sent a letter from us authenticating that you gave as you can claim it on your taxes as a write off, up to $500 as well as a bracelet, hand-made at OIM. bracelets ****

If you need more reasons to give, consider this: this has been a year from hell, weather wise. Despite the claims of drought, we’ve been plagued by torrential rain, flash floods, people losing their homes, etc. Please consider giving to us so that we can give to THEM; to those who’ve lost everything, in some cases, including loved ones. And also, while you’re considering  that, remember THIS- those that you hear about are only some of the people affected by this weather. Those who are not mentioned…the HOMELESS- where do THEY go when the rain is dumping inches of water in minutes? Does anyone even think to spare them thought? Having  been there myself, I most certainly do. Yes, I’ve been blessed with a place to live, a roof over my (and my family’s) head but I’ve only been there for 6 months- previous to that I was at the shelter and prior to THAT I was in another state (Iowa) because the FORMER state I’d been in (California) didn’t have jobs available for me. Like I said, I’ve been in and out of homeless a LONG, LONG time. Now, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to help those that I understand, a position I’ve dreamt about for many years, but until now have not been able to do.
