Day Two of my Twelve Days of Giving…
Organization: Market Street Mission – http://www.marketstreet.org/
Almost every community has people who struggle with addiction or homelessness. In our town, the Market Street Mission provides food and shelter as well as spiritual guidance. As men move through the program, they also are given jobs so that they, too, can give back.
I like that philosophy: Give back. They also run a cool thrift store and, every single time I go there, the men are happy, polite, funny, and respectful. They cannot do enough to help me. I really love this organization.
I am donating this gift of twenty-two meals for the homeless men at the Market Street Mission to my “Mamacita”, Angela. She lives with us and takes awesome care of me, especially when I was sick with cancer. When it’s cold outside, she makes me home-made soup. When I’m sad, she gives me hugs and prayers. And she always tries to help those people who are less fortunate, both here in the US and in Venezuela, her home country. So, this gift is for her.
SING IT: One the second day of Christmas, I give this happily:
Two meals to hungry men,
And a goat to feed a Sudan family.
