Kindness Matters is a program that began as those invisible on the streets became visible to us. We started carrying bags of food each Saturday to those sleeping on the streets, with this expanding to bringing coffee, clothing, books, and other needed items. Understanding the need to empower others, we started distributing gift cards to our local grocery store. This has been very successful as these people are able to choose their own food, obtain a hot meal, or use the $10 card for needed items. We would like to be able to continue this project of card distribution and the $1000 would allow us to purchase 100 cards, which would help 100 individuals over the next few months.
