Helping the Homeless 

Shoe Box Project

On Friday 25th January 2019 TIC Volunteers visited Birmingham City Mission where we met homeless people and gave out 200 shoe boxes containing hats, gloves, toiletries, food items and more. We also gave out items of clothing and blankets.

 

The homeless people receiving these items were so grateful and we had a chance to speak with some who told us of the sad circumstances that led them to be in the situation they now find themselves.

 

"Sad News"

We were all shocked and saddened to hear that one of the homeless we were able to help on that day, was tragically found dead, just days later due to the cold weather. It breaks our hearts to know that a young man of 31 should live in these appalling conditions but even worse to die in them. "R.I.P Kane Walker"

 

It makes us more determined that we need to do more to help the homeless and less fortunate people in our community. We will be planning further visits to help at Birmingham City Mission throughout the year and looking for other ways we can help.

 

In the mean time, if you have any ideas or if you would like to give a donation of any kind please go to ‘How You Can Help’ or ‘Contact Us’.

 

We would like to thank everyone who gave donations and support to enable us to do our Shoe Box Project and hope we can look forward to your support in the future.

 

“Now we all need to wake up to the reality.
We all can do something to contribute to help change things.
What are your plans?
What are you going to do to help change someone else's life?
What can you do to make a difference?
One step at a time...
One person at a time...
One day at a time.
Please give this some deep thought.
There are things we have plans for.
We all can work together".

Come be a part of…
