Winter came early to Texas this year. Many of our less fortunate citizens will be enjoying a warm coat because lots of people donated their extra outerwear to them. “Thank you!” to all those who dropped off your used clothing at a nearby Whole Earth store. We are delivering all these garments to great organizations around the state that will match each piece with someone who can benefit from your kindness. The philanthropic groups who are doing the distribution are these: in San Antonio, it’s SAM’s Ministries; in Dallas, it’s The Life Foundation; in Houston, Star of Hope is serving again this year; and in Austin, the Austin Resource Center for the Homeless is bestowing the outerwear upon new owners. Our thanks is extended to all four of them as well.
Whole Earth’s sincere hope is that small collaborative efforts like this one will ripple out through these communities and beyond to improve lives and, ultimately, our world.
