The Homeless and Displaced
We follow the teachings of Jesus in all we do at Parson's Porch. We believe that if we do not care for the "least of these" in a practical and daily way, we have failed as human beings and any success as a publisher is woefully inadequate. We support the work of New Life Community Kitchen, The Salvation Army, and the Cleveland Emergency Shelter.
The following list reflects the type of items we buy each month for the homeless and displaced people in Cleveland, Tennessee:
laundry soap detergent
quarters for laundry
men's cotton crew socks
cotton socks - children
first class postage stamps
coloring or activity books
small stuffed animals
small, safe toys
cheese & crackers
pull-top canned fruit or vegetables
pull-top pasta or chili,
Hot meals are served each day of the week at the Community Kitchen, Salvation Army and the Emergency Shelter.
Daily showers and weekly laundry services are provided by the Salvation Army.
Shelter is provided each night for the homeless, including women and children.
