ruthless winter to come: sleeping in ice & snow
Every year, the media and the local government advise that the elderly and children be protected from the cold. They also offer hot-line phone numbers for people to complain if they’ve got no heat and/or hot water. Of course, there’s also the worry of the homeless — those who sleeping in the cold streets out of no other choice. Shelters are offered as an alternative, which of course can only hold a certain number of people leaving many in the cold. In all, winter in NYC can be brutal and ruthless especially if you’re cold with your body heat dropping by the minute and getting numb.
I’m listing some organizations if you care to help or need help.
What I just wrote above is absolutely nothing unless you’ve lived through this. Do something. At least, support whatever outreach ministry your church offers. Said the latter, if your church doesn’t have outreach programs, find another church.
