I want to introduce you to a new initiative as we try to learn ways in which we can love our neighbours. Mary Martin is spearheading a project to care for homeless people in our town. You’ll get more details in the days to come but to gear up – here are ways we’ll invite you to join in. If you can sew, write, give stuff, walk pack bags or pray you can be part of the team! We need some eyes as well on the streets, in the parks and in the out of the way places in Milton to find those with whom we will be able to share our love. If you have seen makeshift tent collections or places where or homeless neighbours are finding shelter we’d love to know so feel free to be our spotters for the next while and report back what you’ve seen. We are anxious to respectfully and lovingly reach out.
As we continue to hold on and wait until the pandemic storm settles let’s take care of one another as well.
Halton Alive is looking for volunteers to chalk walkways with colourful and encouraging designs and messages at 45 long term care and retirement homes. The initiative is running during June & August and is a great way for us to continue the ARK project. If you would like to participate you can sign up at haltonalive.ca/inspirehope
