Every February we set up at the YWCA in Hazleton, Pa. We give away coats, clothes, shoes, blankets, toys, and food to the homeless and the needy in our community. We meet with the people and socialize as well as help them with resources such as info on shelters, AA meetings, counseling services and many more. #Hand4Hazle
We go to the Hazleton bus station and give out sanitary kits, socks, shoes, coats, and clothing. Through this we are able to minister to the homeless. We talk with them, spend time with them and get to know them . Through this we develop a relationship with them and get to know their needs and challenges so that we know the best way to help them.
Every August we go to the Hazleton Housing Authority and provide backpacks, school supplies, shoes and clothing to the children and their families. This program helps meet children's educational needs so that they can reach their full potential in school. Last year we served 200 children. This year our target is to provide for 500 children in Hazleton, Freeland, and Wilkes Barre.
No investment is better than investing in a child's education.
Children are our future. Help us, help them.
Every year in October, we have a homeless birthday party at the YWCA . We provide a meal, birthday cake and give out clothing, shoes, and sanitary kits. On this day we celebrate all our homeless friends birthdays. It makes them feel human again and loved.
