Homeless robbed. What makes a person rob a person? Last week someone broke into New Day, the women's drop-in center.
That's a place where we go. After the wake-up call at 6:30 a.m. at the shelter, we go to the drop-in center for a shower, breakfast, phone calls, and safety from abuse. But that has been taken from us. We have a problem with robberies too. It does happen to people who don't have money, great homes, and bank cards. They stole the computer and the van- the only transportation we have to pick us up in the morning at the shelter.
Please, if you have a heart, understand what we are going through please donate a computer and a van to help us keep our records and to give us transportation. Help our drop-in center. (Please contact Mrs. Ruth Gray or Mrs. Coretta Parker at 781-3414).
