Our home church is Crossroads of Life, in Duncanville, Texas. One of the church’s outreach programs is to the homeless in the Dallas area, since Duncanville is basically a southern suburb of Dallas. For the past 15 or 20 years, the church, through this outreach has provided weekly meals to the indigent persons of Dallas County as well as health and hygiene items, clothing, and etc.
This past Sunday, the church announced a need for spring clothing for the outreach. I talked to the person who is in charge of the outreach and where I could bring clothes and/or hygiene items to help with the outreach (It is time for some Spring Cleaning around here!) and he let me know that if we brought our stuff to the church office, located at 123 U.S. 67 Frontage Road, Duncanville, TX 75137 that the church would contact him to let him know it’s there and he would pick it up from the office.
Since it’s an ongoing outreach program, things are (of course) always needed. I asked him what kinds of items and he said that (other than clothes) they always have a shortage of toothbrushes, toothpaste (small travel size), disposable razors, shampoos, soap, etc.
Over the next couple of weeks, Kim and I will be putting some of these things together for the outreach program.
Since the items would be donated through the church, they would basically qualify as a tax deduction, so if you have a few things hanging around that you don’t need, instead of just throwing it out, get a tax deduction and help someone less fortunate!
