Homeless Friends

I blogged awhile ago about my friend Kit Kat who passed away. I wanted to share that I found out what happened to KK. She was sitting on a bench and fell, hit her head on the sidewalk. She was very ill, no one hurt her. For awhile my homeless friends couldn't talk to me about it because they were so upset. I was so thankful for the news.

By the way if you want to help the homeless, give them clean socks. They always need socks and it is so nice for their feet.

Don't give them hard to chew food (beef jerky, chewy fruit snacks...) most have dental problems so even if they are hungry they can't eat it.

As a rule, whenever I'm asked for money I say, "I can't give you money, but if you're hungry I can get you something to eat." If they are hungry they let me know.

A freak accident is so much easier to handle. Thanks for the tips. I never thought about their teeth.

My pastor collects socks for the homeless living on the streets of our state capital. You know it would be a neat project for knitters because handmade gifts seem to provide even more warmth . . .
