Tonight is our final night of the season. Tomorrow morning we will bid farewell to each of those that have found a haven in Code Purple Sussex County. We are, as always, saddened by the prospect of our guests making their way on the streets. These are our neighbors, friends, and loved ones. They will need continued prayer and the support of everyone that cares about what happens in the community.
We have found joy in providing 105 nights of safe, warm shelter for our guests. We accomplished this despite Covid. Our volunteers braved the waters (or should we say air) and came to spend the night with our guests, and we are happy to report that we had not one Covid case. Our volunteers have talked, prayed, cried, and given selflessly to those they cared for each night. We are sure they are tired, but it is a tiredness that you find satisfaction inside. We praise God for allowing us to have another successful winter season and seeing us through to the end.
We want to thank the churches that allow us to use their spaces to offer warmth and shelter. We had five churches this season; Stein Hwy Church of God, Grace Seaford, Georgetown Presbyterian, Milford Avenue Methodist, and Milford Nazarene. We were also grateful for the use of Troop 7 for a second season.
We are very thankful to anyone and everyone that gave donations in any form. You took your time and talents to provide essentials for those in need. We could not do it without you backing us.
Now, as we move into another part of the year, we will continue to provide food, clothing, and essentials to those that call in through LoveINC of Mid-Delmarva. We will continue to seek help and walk alongside anyone experiencing homelessness that would like to pursue a healthy life.
We will continue to need volunteers at LoveINC of Mid-Delmarva if you would like to help us year-round. You can call 302-629-7050 or 302-956-6006 to let them know you would like to help!
