Drop off some socks to @MatthewsHope25. It will help keep feet warm and dry :-) Read more here…

Matthew’s Hope actually started as a result of a few folks who did not want the homeless of West Orange County to be cold.

In January 2010, the forecast declared a long stretch of cold nights. It ended up being 47 consecutive nights of temps below 40 degrees. A make-shift winter shelter in the youth building on the campus of the West Orange Church of Christ birthed a non-profit organization less than three months later dedicated to deeply loving our homeless friends in the neighborhoods around us. Now, over 40 local churches as well as multiple local businesses and health organizations partner to make every Tuesday happen at Matthew’s Hope.

One of the ways you can currently help is by keeping the feet of our homeless friends dry and warm. SOCKS. They need socks.

And so, on September 30th, please bring at least one package of men’s or women’s white socks to worship gathering to give to Matthew’s Hope. Bring more than one package if you want. 🙂

Grateful that we get to love our neighbors and the nations together in so many ways.
