Once again we have had a tremendously full & blessed week!
Most of the week has been focused on preparing the Fall Fest Outreach & building our website content. All of you that check out our website, will see changes daily. The big changes implementing our graphics will be seen within the next week & much more in the weeks following. So all of you with pictures, videos, & stories of your experiences with SRM/LOL & God keep sending them to me.

We did take time this week for a Core Guest Speaking for the Shawnee Board of REALTORS® luncheon on Friday. We want to thank their members for inviting us to speak. Those that attended the luncheon blessed us tremendously by taking up a collection & raising $1,228.66! They also came up with the great idea to challenge every realtor in Shawnee to each buy one sleeping bag for the homeless. This will be such a blessing to be able to make sure our people stay warm especially with this cold weather getting harsher each day. Many more are joining us in our fight against poverty & we welcome them to our group.

Finally, we wrapped up our week with Fall Fest Flyer hand out this morning. We covered a lot of the areas we felt would benefit most from the outreach, but there are still many more to get to. So please call us if you can do even a few blocks one night this evening, especially anyone in Tecumseh because we have not been able to get there at all.

As we look forward to the next week, the big thing on the horizon is the Fall Fest Outreach. For detailed information about what is still needed please see the Fall Fest Outreach page.

Part of the outreach's needs are being raised in the DRIVE. This term refers to the blankets, coats, sleeping bags, & especially clothing drive we have going on in order to have items to give away at the outreach. We have tallied what we already have gathered & are coming up very short on clothing in comparison to what we normally have at the outreaches. Please know that all of the clothes we receive will be given to those in need, no charge. Also, one note, we hang these up at the park for people to look through, so if you can leave your clothes on the hangers & save us a step. In order to accommodate any & all donations, we have the following services set-up:

  • My assistant has opened her house as a drop off site by appointment or we will even pick-up your items if need be. To set up a drop off appointment or have your items picked up call our main line or Jan Hinesley @ 885-1633.
  • For those who can, please announce our need for clothing, hangers, & clothes racks to your church. If you would be willing, please take it a step further & ask them to bring everything to your church next Sunday the 18th. For those who can bring the items to our storage call & we will set up a time on Monday the 19th for someone to meet you there. If not, we will arrange to pick them up on that Monday or Tuesday.
  • The drop-off day at Living Word Church on North Kickapoo on October 22 10am to 4 pm.
  • Nicole (Wood) Allen will serve as the DRIVE collector for St. Gregory's & accept small donations at her office on campus.
  • We also have added a drop-off evening at the site of the daycenter, 506 S. Beard, on Monday, October 19th from 5pm to 8 pm.

Finally, remember if you want to get a SRM/LOL t-shirt, volunteers can get shirts for themselves or to donate to the homeless at cost for $5 (that includes tax) before the outreach. They will be $10 on the day of & there after until we do another mass volunteer order. In order to get your shirt send us an email with your name & size, childrens' sizes available. We have people at various churches serving to collect the money for their group (ask in your email who your church's is) or you can bring it to Brandy directly. All t-shirts must be paid for by Monday, October 19th. Brandy will be at the Sunday Lunch in Woodland Park @ 2pm October 18th or the DRIVE drop-off on that day at the daycenter site to collect t-shirt money as well. The t-shirts will available to be picked-up on Friday, October 23rd at our temporary headquarters 3700 N. Kickapoo Ste 140 (the old Eric's Pharmacy at the north end of the Family Medicine Specialist building) from 5 pm to 7 pm. Or at the volunteer table at the outreach. The outreach begins at 2pm but the table & Brandy will be there with the shirts at noon. Sorry no credit cards accepted, checks can be written to Shawnee Rescue Mission. Hooded zip-up sweatshirts are also available at cost, which will be determined by next weeks update.

Please feel free to contact us. We are here to help, answer questions, pray for you, or anything else that you may need from us. We cannot do what we do without you! We are grateful for each & everyone of you!
