The joy of Christmas is having the ability to share good things with those less fortunate right here at home.
Moms Against Hunger was ask to provide for Christmas for an apartment complex that suffers from 78% Aids, as well as drug addiction, gang violence and all sorts of crime. Single moms who live here are trapped by poverty, poor education and the cycle of circumstances beyond their control.
A team went with me into this apartment complex. Matthew had a team there as well ready to help... he brought tables, bright happy music and chairs. They also served a lunch to everyone who came.
Pink backpacks for girls and Red/Black ones for the boys. Each one had books, and toys/stuffed animals inside. Along with Moms Against Hunger food each backpack was filled with love and given out to each child.
If I could have hugged each woman and talked with each one I would have!!
The eyes of single moms says it all..... their gratitude was touching.
Matthew Bismark the coordinator of this event, wants an interview to talk about Moms Against Hunger and our vision for nutritional food for the needy.
And we interviewed a couple of men who were watching all that was happening from the sideline. They were curious as to why we would bring food to THIS area. Hard eyes watched us walk the entire complex praying for every family who lives here. No one touched us, but we touched all of them.
Pastor Chris, is in this area who will help his community with the acts of kindness done today. More later....
