This week, Linda Allen from the Center for Workforce Development housed in Brooklyn’s Marketplace and Kathy Leonard from Roth of FR stopped in the Buckton Presbyterian Church off Strasburg Road to pick up 25 cozy warm sleeping bags that were handmade with love. Over the past year, a group of amazing women have been meeting and sewing these sleeping bags with the intention of sharing them with the homeless to help keep warm over the cold winter months. We are so fortunate that we have organizations like the Center for Workforce Development and ROTH of FR who work directly with the homeless and do all they can to make a difference and make connections.
Please note: December 15th and 29th there will be a community breakfast, free of charge. All are welcome. Good food and good company at the Cavalry Episcopal Church located at 132 N Royal Ave, Front Royal, VA. Safe place to enjoy a hot meal, engage in conversation or just sit quietly in peace.
If you know of anyone who is in need, please don’t hesitate to contact either organization right away for help.
