I wanted to post today to ask my wonderful audience to please consider contributing to an important need my church is working to meet in the next few weeks. Winter is on its way, and promises to be a rather brutal one even by my Northerner standards in terms of cold weather. There are a lot of families in our area who are in need and we are organizing an effort to help those who need coats and other winter clothes for themselves and their families to get what they need.
If you are in the North Texas area, I would ask you to consider giving of your time and resources to donate clothing for this effort. If you are not, there are still ways you can support this, and I would ask you to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to see how you can help meet the needs of so many down here. I love my city and its people, and I am very gratified for the chance to show that love at any opportunity. Please consider giving of your own time and funds to support those in need this winter.
