It is clear that winter is near as the phone rings for clothing appointments! Winter coats, boots and gloves are going out the door. Keeping sizes available for all on hand is important. If you have a warm coat you no longer need that has a working zipper, we can pass it along to someone who needs it.
This week at least three infants will have beds, formally homeless adults will have furniture to make their empty apartments comfortable and families have cookware to heat their food. Many have taken devotionals home with them. We are so thankful God has given us the opportunity to share with others in desperate times. For many, these moments are testimonies of how God has provided when their hope was gone.
There are many gracious volunteers who contribute their time to get ready for our next referral. Whether it is sorting, hanging or steaming clothing, packing up household items, delivering, or answering the phone, each task is an act of giving. If you know a volunteer, please tell them " thank you ".

We are looking forward to our open house this Sunday from 1-4! It will be a celebration of how God has given us a huge opportunity to be a light in our community! Please join us.
Our single parenting class is small but those who are attending are going in tired and coming out refreshed. It is so fun to see God at work. Thank you to the helpers who are committed to the group!
Today a woman called for a bunk bed on the verge of tears. A very rough day. If you know of anyone who might have a bunk bed that isn't being used and would like to donate it, please call us!

We are very thankful to the many volunteers who are dedicating time to Reach & Restore! It is a gift to be around people who want to make a difference.
The single parenting class is a blessing. Please continue to pray for the ladies and helpers. If you know someone who might be wanting to join this fall session, have them give us a call for more information.
A huge thank you to the God Squad (children's program at Ridgewood Church) who gathered many useful items that were needed at Reach & Restore! Teaching children while they are young to give and care about others as Christ asks is very important!
This week we had a call from a woman who had surgery yesterday. She asked for a bed frame so she'd be able to get out of her bed with less pain while healing. Praise God we had one come in the day before she called. We don't believe in coincidences. God orchestrates these moments! Thankfully, today her mattress is off the floor and we'll be praying for her recovery.
Our biggest need is financial at this time. Trusting in God's faithfulness is humbling and awesome!
