A Success! Greyland Youth Organization -Food and Clothe drive
Posted by The Gritz
Greyland Youth Organizations second food drive was a great success. In spite of terrible storm weather the commitment of Greylands community members shined bright.
13 Greyland community members from ages 5 to 55 sacrificed there warm homes for a cold and wet tent over a bench in San Bernardino Meadow Brook Park.
The tent talk was an encouraging action plan of Greylands agenda to help its community and make a positive difference.
Each volunteer did exactly that as they provide hot meals and warm (dry) clothing to over 30 homeless and needing neighbors.
The group was able to socialize personally with some of the communities poorest members and put a name to those whom actually live within the Meadow Brook parks parameters.
Mr. Ivory was an especially touching case being 65 years old, fully native American, world traveled and amongst the humblest of spiritual men one could ever meet. Mr. Ivoryvwho calls the parks eastern most bench his home spends ever night with only a blue 8×5 tarp as his shelter.
Greylands Community members where able to trade Mr. Ivory’s as well as about 15 others wet clothing, soaked from lastnights unsheltered sleep, for new socks, new shoes, new pants, new shirts, new sweaters, new jackets, and a new blanket for tonight’s unsheltered sleep.
The warming feeling of helping others in the truest of need seem to bring the sun out through the days storming rain.
We thank all those that donated and especially thank those Greyland participants. Our grey hearts blessings to those who we were able to serve, feed, and encourage.
We look forward to further influence within the inland community for years to come.
“I may be broke… but I’m God’s child I can’t be broken” – Mr. Ivory
