Elizabeth Stamm is Helping the Homeless Get Back on Their Feet

Elizabeth Stamm is Helping the Homeless Get Back on Their Feet | helpingothers | Scoop.it

Stamm overseas temporary housing at the Salvation Army's Family Residence. Read this article and find out how you can help.

 

My Thoughts:

Stamm is a lady that gives her all to helping others and just reading this article i saw how awesome she is. She supervises seven different families that are in her temporary housing program. This program helps families that mostly consist of multiple children living with a single mom that usually was fighting to get away from domestic violence. While the parent is out searching for jobs and learning to be a better parent that kids are assigned chores and are safe at a home instead of on the streets. Even though this is only about seven families every couple of weekjs or until they are back on their feet that is several kids that now have a place to stay and a mom that now can search for a job and support their family.

Orlando Magic Thanksgiving turkey trot; NBA team and fans help homeless shelters; runners do turkey trot

Orlando Magic Thanksgiving turkey trot; NBA team and fans help homeless shelters; runners do turkey trot | helpingothers | Scoop.it

Attention sports fans: You can help local charities on Thanksgiving, whether you want to sit and cheer for your Orlando Magic or get up early and run the 23rd Annual Turkey Trot 5k in downtown...

 

My Thoughts:

This article stuck out to me because i am a huge sports fan myself, especially a fan of the Orlando Magic. When i read that these NBA players toke time from their busy days to serve food at a homeless shelter on Thanksgiving melted my heart. People like that could choose to stick to themselves and play around with their loads of money but no they still chose to give back to their community and help those that dont have the things that they have or anywhere near that.

Homeless shelters get help during freezing temperatures

Homeless shelters get help during freezing temperatures | helpingothers | Scoop.it

With below freezing temperatures outside this week, Charlotte-area shelters are busier than normal. The two men’s shelters are housing more than six hundred men combined, slightly more than normal, in their busiest year yet.

 

My Thoughts:

I think it is awesome what people in Charlotte, NC are doing to help the homeless. They have around 100 groups of volunteers, including the Salvation Army, churches, ministry centers, YMCA, and many other volunteers help to keep the homeless off the freezing streets. Besides the warm rooms and beds that they offer they also offer counseling for men and women. I love that they provide all the opportunities for these people to get back on their feet and stay healthy.
