You only need to find out what it is that you have to give. Homelessness occurs not only in the United States, but all over the world. I have often seen homeless people looking in the trash can for food or picking up cigarette butts from trash cans. I often asked myself, “Where is their family?” “Do they have any family?”
Everyone has been given 24 hours in a day, but it is up to us how we use our time. Do We prioritize our time? Do we take time for what is important to us? Volunteers are always needed at soup kitchens for feeding the homeless. Have we finally arrived? Have we finally reached the status quo that we have been struggling for? Whether the answer is yes or now, we should never forget where we came from. Do we remember the importance of helping those less fortunate than us? Do we take the time to say to ourselves, “It could have been me”?
We can always donate clothing to homeless centers. Clothing is a basic need in life. Many that are homeless are that way because of circumstances beyond their control. Not always having a place to store or put their clothing, puts them in a situation of needing clothes more often.
3. Homeless Veterans
Have we ever considered the many veterans that have laid their life down for us? Well there are those veterans that are homeless. The least we can do is to help them, considering what they have done for us. Ways to help are giving your talent. Go into a shelter and sing or dance. Assess what skills and talents you have to give. You can always give cash donations also. Give what you have to give. Think about it. God has always given you something to give to others.
4. Homeless & Emergency Shelters
There are homeless centers in nearly every state. You never know whether you may end up in an emergency shelters. So you should “never say never.” Many abusive situations have resulted in families needing emergency shelter, because their home or a relationship was destroyed. Flood victims have ended up in emergency shelters.
Why not do something for the homeless today?
