CHRISTMAS and THANKSGIVING!
Two days out of 365 that you are pretty much guaranteed to have a hot meal when your homeless, as long as you don't mind listening to a heavy dose of preaching along with your dessert.
"Missions" capitalize on images of raggedy street people hunkering down at a common table for some turkey, when they do their solitications for funds. HEY it's TAX DEDUCTIBLE so pull out your wallet!
In some cities the homeless spend their days on public buses and on foot, circulating to HOMELESS FEEDS, set up in parks, churches, and shelters, and if they have a Food Stamp card too, they will not likely feel the pangs of hunger ever.
For many homeless, churches also offer clothing give outs, and personal product giveaways. But you may have to stand being prayed over before you can leave with your loot.
Stores that provide for food banks must also be getting huge TAX DEDUCTIONS for all those stale loaves of bread and old pies they donate.
FOR THE HOMELESS FOOD IS THE EASY PART... It's SHELTER THAT'S DIFFICULT!
