Street Help Homeless Shelter

Hi Nancy,

Street-HelpI wanted to tell you how much the gifts from your group meant to our people. In particular I thought you would enjoy the reaction to the beautiful coat from Egypt. One of our ladies came in shivering. The morning had been a frosty one and she was so happy to help herself to a hot cup of coffee and a bowl of oatmeal. I was taking things out of my office to bring back to the sorting tables and as I passed the lady asked if she could please have the blanket I was carrying. I put down the other items and held the coat up for her to see. She cried out how beautiful it was and apologized for thinking it was a blanket. I told her she had no need to feel bad, she was asking for something to keep her warm and the coat looked like a perfect fit. She slipped on the coat and twirled about asking how she looked. Everyone told her how beautiful the coat looked on her and some commented how it seemed it was made for her. The coat was made for her. God works in wondrous ways and bestows blessings in unique and incredible ways! You had told me a lady had taken the coat off her back and donated it wanting to make her gift to the homeless personal. Please let her know her gift was truly a blessing to another woman in need. We are grateful for all the gifts provided for us to distribute to the homeless.

Thanks Nancy, and may God send special blessings to you, the lady who donated the coat and to all the wonderful ladies of WMAD.
