January 2014

Here in Northeast Pennsylvania, we are working on a project to replace our ten year old delivery van. We will be creating an ongoing series of coffee table stories containing experiences we have had with our homeless neighbors.

Here in the Northeast, our neighbors make and deliver to us between 5000-6000 sleeping bags each year. We serve our surrounding cities first, than go to the next ring of towns that have asked for help.

If you would like to help us in this endeavor, by contributing a two or three paragraph experience, please do so. We would like to hear from you about your encounters with our homeless neighbors. We are also collecting pictures of quilts that are donated, to add to this serious but fun effort to serve people in a caring way.

An example of an experience is in the Dec. 2013 Notes, written by Marge Wheatley-Olsen. Please help us keep the van rolling.

But by the Grace of GOD go I.

Please let us know what you are doing for the homeless.

We need to connect with you, as to what you or your group are doing, to get help from the people in your area that also want to help.

This may help you get donations, and new volunteers.

There isn’t a THANK YOU big enough for saving lives, by preventing hypothermia in the homeless population.

If your group is already on the web-site, please keep in touch with us at least once a year.

We will be starting the year off by updating our Groups list on the website. If you would like to add ( we can put the days that you meet) or delete anything on your contact information please let us know us and we will make the changes.

Warm wishes to all.

The Wheatley family and friends
