I am so excited about an opportunity that we women have to bless and pamper homeless women in our own community!
Project Homeless Connect is an event is meant to bring service providers from the region into one place where those families who are homeless — or in danger of being homeless — come seeking help. The idea is to make it easy for the families to access help. One of these event was held in Allegan last spring and one in Pullman last fall. Both drew more than 100 families. Some of the emphasis is on connecting the families with DHS, Mental Health, etc. . . but there also is an emphasis on helping these people find a little hope.
This is a TEAM effort and we are coordinating it with the Praise and Coffee Girlfriend’s Weekend so you can get involved too, but you do not need to be at the conference to help.
We are purchasing the bags and the booklets and we need your help to fill them up!
Here are three ways you can get involved:
1. Bring *NEW* lotions, toiletries and/or beauty products when you come to the conference.
~Please email me to let me know what you are bringing so we can plan accordingly for what we need.
2. Purchase a Praise and Coffee Mug/”Praise and Coffee” one pot bag of coffee combo through PayPal for $10 and pick it up at the conference. (You may order them to be shipped to you for $15 each)
To order mugs:
~ Click on “donate” link in sidebar and pay for mugs ($10 to pick up at conference, $15 for each one you need shipped to you)
~Then email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org the specifics of your order information:
Name & # of mugs ordering and/or amount of donation.
3. Volunteer your time on Monday, March 9th at Project Homeless Connect. They are needing volunteers to help. They need runners to get people from station to station and nursery workers. Volunteer for a half of a day or all day. The event is from 9-3pm in Otsego. Email me ASAP if you would be able to help for some or all of the day.
