Wow, it’s here again, a rebirth of life and hope of things to come.
Winter has taken its toll. The earth has rested and some of what
0ur homeless neighbors have endured is softening. It’s time to get
ready for the next winter season. People are very generous donating the
supplies we need.
Believe it or not, here in Hop Bottom, PA, we have been
making sleeping bags for 34 years and have yet to buy a yard of fabric,
or a blanket or a sheet for backing.
There are things we do need, like crochet thread for tying, needles, stamps, and gas for deliveries. The road to achieve our goal of preventing hypothermia in the homeless population, is to ask for the supplies and they will come.
They will come because the sleeping bag project is blessed. It will never end because it is the right thing to do for our homeless neighbors.
