Then goal is reached. Any further donations will be used by the empowerment project . There are people in our community that experience absolute homelessness. These individuals are some of the most vulnerable members of society for a variety of reasons. And there many people that are sleeping outdoors and in tents, as the winter turns bitter cold. There will be some temporary relief but not for all - some individuals will remain outside in the coldest of conditions.
Recently, I’ve change my area of nursing practice and through this I have connected with many individuals experiencing homelessness, marginalization, and ongoing stigmatization. And contrary to some people’s opinions - these people do not in anyway come close to having their needs met - they are hungry, cold, and neglected. I want to help them as the weather turns colder and their resiliency is further tested.
I am fundraising to purchase wind proof winter jackets that convert into sleeping bags made by the Empowerment Plan. Maybe you want to buy someone in need a gift this holiday season. I would love to arrange an order of about 10 coats if I am able to raise funds.
