Donations of Warm Weather Items Pour In!!!

Dear SoupFriends:

Last week during the Arctic cold snap, I put out a Code Blue appeal for winter coats, blankets, clothes, boots, gloves and hats. My grateful thanks for the incredible outpouring of donations that flooded the SoupMobile. You came by with all kinds of warm winter gear and the SoupMobile went on nighttime patrol during the cold snap delivering these items to the homeless living under the bridges, in the woods and behind dumpsters.

In the Dallas area there are over 10,000 homeless people, but only 2,000 shelter beds. Simply math tells us that many homeless people are living outside every night. Your donations helped them through this last cold snap. Your donations make a huge difference. For many of us its hard to comprehend how one could survive living outside in the worst of the winter weather. It's certainly not easy, but with your help you gave them a fighting chance to stay warm and safe.

Some people think the spirit of giving and caring is dying out. You all are living proof that this is not true. I am truly touched and humbled by your generous outpouring during this last cold snap. Thank you for helping me help the ones Jesus called the 'least of these.'

We/you are making a difference.

May the Lord bless and keep you all.
