We are more then half way there!!! Our children have been taught from an early age the importance of acts of goodness and kindness. This is especially true on one's birthday. Last week our youngest two turned 5 & accompanied their older siblings giving out food packages & challas. There is nothing more meaningful to the elderly to be remembered by children.
Greetings do you have storage space for the homeless to store their belongings?
🎄🎄 Merry Christmas 🎄🎄 And 🌹GOD BLESS 🎀
If you tell somebody to tell somebody I won't tell anybody who told you. The breakfast is free & so are the uplifting words. Mario the Poet told you but just between us.
I heard some cities are putting in Vending machines that the homeless can get free items from twice a week with the slip of a credit-like card to help their needs. Has anybody done that in Milwaukee yet?
Help. There was a man outside of Beans & Barley. Obviously very cold very thin jacket. Hard to understand but he was trying to get a coat. We told him we'd go get him one and bring it back. He wanted to go with us (because the lady from Beans and Barley was kicking him out of their lot I believe). I think he wanted warmth but really wanted a coat! He was black, thin, jeans fallen below his rear, missing teeth on the bottom. Hard for him to communicate. I don't know where goes at night. Felt so bad and if we went and got him a coat he most likely would be gone. Do you help find people like this? No gloves, navy very thin jacket. Wsa there today at around 9:30 10a.m.

We need to create some org. that buy land. { a group of us get together to buy land and form an org to make the purchase} We then create eco villages, that live by the principles of NON VIOLENT COMMUNICATION by Marshall Rosenberg. We can create a cooperative if we choose, but we should definitely raise some food. Our homes can be tiny house eco of grid homes. We need to start this right away.
Lately, we at Casa Maria had a lot of donated. We have no room for it so it is in the alley behind Casa. If you have room anywhere for it, we could bring it to you. Please let us know. Call me at 414-342-0158.
THANK GOD the $200M funding will not be cut
