You may have seen this story about homeless families who started camping in North Philly as Church of the Poor to draw Pope Francis’ attention to the homeless. http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/…/homeless-families-kensi…/
St. Mark’s Church has given 5 families sanctuary at the church. There are 22 people including 6 kids – some young. Bob and I talked with Dean Jon and Deacon Phil about how we could help. We were told that these were some of the families’ immediate needs: toilet paper
soap – bathing
laundry detergent (no pods as kids think it’s candy)
food – dry goods (the families are able to cook for themselves)
If you prefer, you can send a donation c/o Family Sanctuary, St. Mark’s Church, 4442 Frankford Ave, Phila., PA 19124
Thank you! God bless for your care and concern!
