This need was met in under 5 minutes! What a great way to start out the year! Below is the need we posted.
Here at the beremedy, we're huge advocates of families. We've recently heard of a boy who was in foster care and is about to be adopted. This is really exciting! We've created a family for ourselves and can't wait for this guy to experience the same love we feel! Alas, some paper work got lost in the process and has created a significant hold up in the process between the states. While awaiting to be united with his new family, the foster home he was in burned down and he lost everything he owned, which wasn't much. His immediate needs are clothes, which we're also big advocates for. :) We'd really like to help him out but will need YOUR help to do this! Here's the details of what we need.
Size 11 Shoes
Size 32 Pants (long)
Size Medium and Large Shirts, Sweatshirts and Jackets.
Baby, it's cold outside! Don't forget your coat! If you don't have one, there's a problem. Bread of Life Ministries Food Kitchen is an organization out of Alabama and they're great at meeting needs in their community. A local group of middle schoolers is teaming up to collect coats for the people that this organization helps. We LOVE what they're doing and are joining in the hunt for wintery-weather-wear. If you've got an extra and want to give it, we'll take it to someone without one!
If you can help with this need or know someone that can, show up with your extra coats to the parking lot at North Point Community Church Alpharetta, Ga THIS Friday from 3-6pm. If you can't drop off your hand me downs, email Amy Bley at Amy@beremedy.org to get connected with the right people. Thanks for being the remedy.
Here at beremedy, we love the fall season. The colors, crisp, cool air and the rain get us pretty pumped. We realize that without proper outerwear, this weather is a bit of a Debbie-Downer. How could anyone enjoy it while their toes are freezing? There's a young girl who is walking around in flip flops and although, she probably loves the weather just as much as we do, she has no means of acquiring some warmer wearables. We've been told that this girl doesn't ever ask for anything for herself. Let's do something for her and provide her with some fantastically furry footwear. This way, while she enjoys the changing weather, she can also remain healthy as the temperatures drop.
We're hoping to get her something like those Ugg boots we're beginning to see more of. What's awesome is that you can find them most places now for a fraction of the price! OR here>>>online! She needs a size 8.5. Thanks for being the remedy!
