This wonderful lady named Tammy at Eagles View Church in Fort Worth, Texas has taken to hand the task of creating Christmas Care Gift Boxes for Fort Worth’s surrounding areas homeless population. We have tent city areas in the more remote regions of Tarrant County. These people live off the grid and do not partake in the use of sanctuary shelters. Tammy’s mission is to work with another group of individuals who serve these people already but are understaffed and have very limited funds, to reach their goals. Tammy said, “God has put it on my heart to do something to help our areas homeless population. I have resisted for three years, but am now obedient to his call.”
We are filling about 100-150 gift-wrapped boxes with toiletries, socks, scarves, gloves, and hat sets. Some candy and cookies will be included for a festive touch along with a Christmas card I am designing. It is an ambitious undertaking for about a dozen women in our small group. We are trusting the Lord for donations and our pocketbooks to be full so we can make generous donations of time, talent, and the monies required.
Eventually, I would like to make these care boxes a four-season event. We are not enabling them to stay homeless, but while they are homeless they can be given some of the basic human would-be-nice items that we would feel are just necessities for civilized people; like soap and water, toilet tissue, dental aides, basic first aid supplies, and towels, etc. If you want to donate items or money contact me at my email address and I will give you the church’s address that you can send stuff to. If you don’t want to participate that’s alright, too. I hadn’t planned on making this a donation page- but I thought someone else might like the opportunity to bless a stranger and make their day a little brighter.
