It is hard to imagine that just so close to us are human beings suffering this much. My father, a pilot, a genious inventor, the most brilliant man I ever met went from a millionaire to a homeless bum. For many years he was stricken with alcoholism. But by the grace of God, he overcame his addiction and lived the remainder of his life to give back to those in need. He never forgot where he had been. He left this earth with grace and dignity. He was a real man, a man that knew what suffering meant, yet he faced his most darkest demons and overcame them. Because of him, I sincerly care about these people. They all have a story. We all do for that matter, but, waking up in a warm safe bed is not a reality for them. Hopefully, things will change in the future so that no human being will suffer like this, However, I must say the pride of the homeless man is very humbling to me. I have met some amazing men and women. Christmas is once a year but homelessness is constant.

Hi Julianna, give me a all if you can but if not, The Holy Cross Center for Women, takes in donations and they give the clothes out to the women at no charge. The women are allowed to get a certain amount of clothes each time they come in. It is a good place to take the stuff and the women really appreciate it. Holy Cross is located in the area of the Poverello House. If you need help getting the things there, just let me know, k. My number is 559 709 2263. I tried to leave you a text on your page but it wont let me.

Cyn, I have a truck load of clothes and shoes, etc. for donation to the homeless, but I don't want to donate it to the usual thrift stores because people with money walk in looking for cool deals. I want this stuff to go directly to the people on the street, not through some intermediary agency where they make the needy buy something. It is my understanding that even at shelters, like Marjoree Mason, they ask the women to make purchases in their thrift store. Any ideas? Thanks, J

I am not sure that I have anymore passion than anyone else for humanity. I think just because of my personal experience with some aspects of life, it has made me more aware of certain issues. I like to share my awareness and hope others could share there awareness too. It is a huge planet, we all have to live on it, at least for now. So, why the hell should we NOT help each other out. If I have it so can anyone...

Cheers...
