Every month Love INC sends out a Monthly Update highlighting our ministries’ biggest needs, both for the clearinghouse and for our GAP programs. People from all over the community always respond with generosity, but every so often we are surprised by an extra special donation.
Frank Slyter, manager at the Hillsboro Costco, read our update, noticed we needed jeans and khaki pants for men. He asked his male coworkers if they had any to spare, and within a few days dropped off a dozen pairs of assorted men’s pants. His gift could not have been any timelier, as we have had several new homeless men become clients who were in dire need of clothing.
“Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you? ‘And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:37-40
