The majority of donations to Anawim come as:
c. Food and clothes
e. Good advice from well-meaning strangers
c. Food and clothes. We gain an abundance of “in-kind” donations, including coats, socks, canned food and other food. And yet, we still are seeking out other food to make our meals with! Some of the donations are so abundant that we provide other ministries with clothing and food as well, especially the St. John’s food bank. This is not to say that we don’t receive some money—usually just enough to pay our bills at our facility at SE 39th and our house on N Williams. Thankfully, the house is paid for by a generous provider. We bought the chickens ourselves and the advice is welcome, but neither got us any more socks to hand out.
