IMG_1582smHe is not a drug addict, nor an alcoholic. He is, in fact, a veteran who served in the Army then worked at the U.S. Postal Service. He even drove semi tractor trailer trucks for a while.   He’s a man with skills and despite living in homelessness is looking for work.   He has family somewhere up north of here. He is well spoken.

Jerry is like many of us who have held a job, have family and even served our country yet, he is also like the many that come to the Loaves and Fishes Community Kitchen for lunch during the week. The small dining room fills daily with individuals, like Jerry, who have fallen on hard times and the meal generously served may be their only meal of the day.   

Jerry allowed me to share a bit about his life and photo because he wants to let you know how much he appreciates your time and/or financial donations. He knows that the meals served at the Loaves and Fishes kitchen come from generous hands and hearts and he appreciates their assistance.   Jerry wants to say thank you for making it possible for him to take a warm shower, receive toiletries, for his -�new-� clothes, and for being able to use the computers to search for a job  in the MUST computer lab.     He acknowledges that many of his friends found jobs using the computers at the Elizabeth Inn Campus and he looks forward to the time when he is once again back on his feet thanks in part to all the assistance from MUST Ministries  and you.

If you have work for Jerry, or some of the others who are looking, contact [email protected].
