PROJECT WARM HAS STARTED
IN KIND DONATIONS
we love our caring police officers
We have the most utmost respect for our Columbus police officers, especially our liaison Officer Alesia Zacher. Late one afternoon Tammy received a phone call from the officer. "Come with me. A "John" has just dumped a "working girl" out of his car on Hudson. She is dying in the arms of her friend.
Tammy remembered the abuse and pain of her former life and reached out to "Sarah" age 42 to share her testimony, counsel her and try to convince her that she too can get a better life.
Then the officer came to the Howey Road Help Center to get items. A 17 year old boy had been shot 6 times in the chest. He died right in front of his younger brothers. So Officer Alesia got items for a Blessing Bag for the mother, placed school supplies into 2 backpacks for the boys and went back out to deliver them.
We just wish everyone in Columbus could hear about the caring that our police show to members of the community.
kits of kindness
ODW Logistics held a hygiene drive supporting local charities. There. is a great need for personal hygiene products in pantries and programs within our communities. Hygiene products are among the most requested items, but are not donated as often as food or household goods.
In concert with their customer partners, ODW Logistics; philanthropy team, the Reach Out Rangers, launched an initiative: "Kits of Kindness." They assembled "kits" where several personal hygiene items are placed in a bag, then boxed and delivered to local charitable organizations for individuals and families in need. Their goal was to build at least 2,000 kits, which will be distributed in Central Ohio and Southern California. God's Hygiene was blessed to receive 500 of those Kits of Kindness.
Officer Alesia Zacher was the first to receive 10 Kits of Kindness for her wellness checks. Evangelist Priscilla McCullough picked up 20 Kits of Kindness for members of her Linden church, New Hope Global Community Church. The managers of the community centers which we partner with each picked up 100 Kits of Kindness: Barack, Douglas and Far East Side to distribute to their families during October. The rest of the kits will be distributed from God's Hygiene Help Center on Oakland Park.
