Wenatchee Network Group donates coats

Wenatchee Network Group donates coats to needy

Submitted by WNG
Each year, members of Wenatchee Network Group choose a project for members to voluntarily participate in.  Projects benefit a charitable organization in our valley. This year, members purchased cases of new coats to donate to Hospitality Ministries. The coats were presented to Paul Hughes, Executive Director, at their November 8 network group meeting.  
Hospitality Ministries operates Hospitality House, a shelter for homeless men, Haven of Hope for homeless women and children, Hospitality Heights for homeless families, and Solomon's Porch, a safe place for junior and senior high school kids where they can get a free dinner and hang out.
"With winter weather upon us, these warm coats will surely be appreciated by those who have no permanent home," said Hughes. Hospitality Ministries is a 34-year-old Christian non-profit organization to help the homeless in our community. Who are the homeless?  They are children, teens, men and women of all ages. Some are addicts. Some are not.  Some have criminal histories, some do not. Some are in school or graduated, while others did not finish school. Some are veterans, while others have never served. They are just like us. They have a story and a name. They may have lost their job and were evicted from their home for lack of paying rent or house payment. They may have been recently divorced and can’t afford rent right now. They may have recently relocated to the Wenatchee Valley and are having trouble finding affordable housing. Whatever the story, they find themselves needing a helping hand. With the cold weather, a warm coat will be greatly appreciated.
