PROJECT WARMTH is a brilliant idea that has been implemented in downtown Greensboro. The 16 Cents Ministry is committed to reaching out to Greensboro's homeless population. One of their initiatives, featured above, is simply hanging clean clothes on a fence on Spring Garden Street near an enclave of homeless people. Imagine being cold, tired, finally finding some place to get hygiene and not having anything but dirty and torn clothes to put on. Now, people can walk by, pick up a change of clothes, and nobody expects anything in return. This closet is open 24 hours.
Just across the street from this fence of clothing, under the Edgeworth Bridge, is where the 16 Cents Ministry holds church services out in the open, with the bridge overhead as a roof. Food, beverages, and toiletries are distributed around the time of the service. People sing, rejoice, and enjoy being part of a church community. If you want to learn more about Church Under the Bridge, stop by the service on Saturday at 6:00. You can be as involved or as anonymous as you want. They will welcome and feed you along with the other 250 participants. No questions asked. If you aren't going to attend but want more information, find it, here. Happy Sunday.
