“Bear one another’s burden and thereby fulfill the law of Christ”
The holidays have come and gone! I hope that while you were out shopping for your family and friends for the holidays that you were thinking about what Christmas is all about. We mark the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day! Thirty two years later he died on the cross for us and our sins. “Greater love hath no man than this; that a man lay down his life for his friends”.
When you are giving to your favorite charity, why not make it a “must do”, to buy the Cleveland Street Chronicle Homeless Newspaper. I am a news vendor and the paper keeps myself and others busy and gives us a little extra money that is much needed.
By all means give to your favorite charity, but please buy the Street Chronicle so that we can try to “get on our feet” by selling the paper.
We have an 80 year old woman selling the paper and she loves the job. Also, we have a blind woman who sells the paper to “make ends meet”, and this helps her out a whole lot. Selling the paper really helps all of us out.
My dream is, not only will you buy the Street Chronicle, but will be an active donor to the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless. The Coalition provides many services to the homeless plus the ever popular ‘Street Card’ that is a necessary information venue, especially for people on the street. So, enjoy the new year, and make my dream come true by donating goods, cash and or checks around the major holidays.
Donations can be made to: NEOCH, 3631 Perkins Ave., 3A-3, Cleveland, Ohio, 44114
Thank You, and Have a wonderful New Year!
