Montrose Street Reach
Matt and I usually participate in some end of the year giving and this year looked to do that in a different way. Spurred on by my good friend Jennifer, we helped organize a small donation drive of items to take to Montrose Street Reach Ministry. This ministry is a Christian ministry that provides dinner, church service, childcare, and donated necessities to those who need it on Wednesday nights. Our church helps regularly with this ministry and my friend is very involved with helping the women who come for help. Our drive sought out toys, books, clothing of all sizes, shoes, blankets, and toiletry items to take down there for distribution. In just a few short weeks with only Facebook messages out to our friends we were able to collect a lot. A full suburban was taken down there last week and immediately distributed to the families who braved the cold. It was wonderful to see the generosity of our friends and just as wonderful to see all of the items immediately being put to use. I am so glad there are good opportunities for direct giving in our area!
