The Idaho ecclesia was again eager to participate in the Bags of Love initiative for 2021/2022. We decided to match the 20 sleeping bags and delivered the 40 bags a couple of weeks apart.
We again chose Corpus Christy which is the only year round day shelter in the area. They had set up a large warming tent in the outdoor court yard in back of the facility which is fenced and gated. We included clothing, blankets, hats and gloves, ground coffee and flyers with the donations. They are also remodeling inside the building to include a mailing center and walk up window to better serve their clients.
Although extremely busy (always it seems) we did get feedback on past food donations what worked well and what not so much. Also that the sleeping bags are a perfect fit for the needs of their clients!
Our Love in Christ,
The Idaho ecclesia
