Project at a Glance Created : 4 months ago
Welcome friends, I am kindly asking for anyone concerned with the wellbeing and safety of the homeless population within our great city to come and help us.
If you live in Newcastle you may have noticed a big increase in homeless people over the last few years. Many have both sad and tragic stories for which they are not to blame! I’m sure you have all heard the idiom “Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes” well once, many years ago, I too found myself homeless. I can assure you its not pleasant.
My congregation and myself go out once a week into the city to distribute essential items like clothing, blankets and food. Although we are a religious group we are very aware that not everyone else is, so we do not aim to “preach” during these outings.
Probably our most important job is simply providing much needed love, support and a sympathetic ear to those who most need it.
I sincerely hope you can find some time to join us.
Looking for People
Can you provide help with anything listed here?
We really need people who can help sort through our donated clothing and food and organise it. We also need people to come out in the tough winter months to help serve food and beverages to the homeless from our van. Any help we can get will be much appreciated.
Incentives are being offered if you get involved with this project.
