Cold Weather Care Packages

One of our ongoing outreach projects is the Cold Weather Care Packages. This project was inspired by a Homeless Veteran. I was on way home from a Drs. appointment, when I was getting off the exit ramp there was a homeless guy sitting at the end of the ramp. When I saw him I felt like crap because I didn’t have anything to give him. Only thing I could do was get him a nice warm lunch. Just so happens  the Sanctuary was gifted with a donation of $200.00 that very day, which enabled us to make up 20 care package that consisted of 1pr of wool gloves, 1pr of wool socks, a toboggan , 1 can of pork & beans, 1 can of Vienna sausages,1 pk of fig newtons, 1 pk of cheddar cheese crackers, and 2 candy canes. We thought it would be great in conjunction with the blanket drive we were organizing. And it was over 40 blankets were given out,  as well as over a dozon coats & Jackets. Doug Hoffman and myself, decided to get right out there distribute some of theses packages throughout  Gaston & Cleveland County. We spent a lot many early morning hours as well as several evening hours too, trying to locate the homeless people in our area. And let me tell you, it was a challenge. We literally had to gain their trust, before they would share any information as to the whereabouts of others. We went into their camps and we listened to there stories. We gained their trust through mutual respect and honesty. Just like us they are a very tight family, theirs just happens to be on the streets. We both learned a lot during those cold and early mornings. It was a very emotional time for me, it made me appreciate everything I had, as well as plant a desire in me to want to do this every year. It was a honor working with Doug Hoffman along with the other Misfits and their families. They dedicated their time, energy and resources for our cause. Working with the Sanctuary, Salvation Army and other local ministries, gave me hope for the human race as a whole. It was a life lesson in humanity. One of the things my Goddess has taught me, is that as long as we stand together, no matter what our race, our religion, our social level or anything else that makes us different, we still stand strong. We are all her children and she will always take care of us. We should act as our Mother does and love everyone no matter what.
In order for the Sanctuary to start assembling these care packages earlier this year, we will sponsor a Bake-Sale at the Misfit Sanctuary Info Booth @ Piedmont PPD, Sept.24th 2011. All the procedes will    purchase the items needed for the Care Packages. Our goal is to atleast match last yrs. 20 care. Please come out and support our cause. Stop by the booth and buy some goodies or bake up a batch your famous brownies. If your so lead, you can donate funds for the packages as well. It takes $10.00 to make up each package. The gloves and socks are Army issue. We felt these items was the most important and they needed to be warm and strong. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.  If you would like to donate your time to help deliver these packages contact us at misfitsanctuary1@yahoo.com
