Hello everyone, a youth group in Burleson Texas have all come together in order to raise money to purchase sleeping bags for the people without homes in the Tarrant County (Fort Worth Texas) this winter.
In this past two weeks I have done research in the Fort Worth area and have found out that there is over 2000 men, women, and children that are homeless. We hope to prevent future sickness and possible death due to cold weather at night by purchasing a number of sleeping bags that can withstand 0 degree weather.
With the help and your generosity,we will surpass a goal of buying over 900 sleeping bags to distribute to homeless persons in the Fort Worth Texas area, we would love to put in an order for 900 sleeping bags, as weel as 900 pairs of socks, and 900 beanies and pay for them in full. Our current distribution date is sometime in March given the items are raised and shipment arrives on time.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO DONATE as there are over 2,000 homeless people within Tarrant County alone. Every dollar we collect will go to helping them stay warm at night.
If you can't donate momentarily you can give away your extra hats, gloves, new socks and coats at the Revival Time United Pentecostal Church 201 N.SCOTT ST Burleson,Texas 76028 Items can be dropped off Hours: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday,Saturday,Sunday at 12:00pm-7:00pm
If you would like to follow up on the purchasing and distribution of the sleeping bags, coats, blankets, you can do so by joing our Facebook event page, where we will be sharing pictures of our progress.
