LFCC is participating in this Workforce Clothing Drive to assist the Doe Fund, a not-for-profit dedicated to work opportunities for formerly incarcerated homeless men in the New York City area.
Alvin Martinez of the Doe Fund came by LFCC to address our congregation about the work that the Doe Fund does and the plight of recently incarcerated homeless men. See a video of his address to the congregation here: https://youtu.be/OAt2acIADGA
The men's clothing items being sought are:
Button Down Shirts
I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 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 25:36-40 English Standard Version (ESV)
