Eye and Foot Care for the Homeless

Thu, September 22, 2011 | CAC

For those that live in and around the Atlanta, GA area, M25 / Opening Our Doors invites you to go under the bridges on the evening of September 22, and bring those who would like to come to Mt. Bethel UMC for an evening centered around eye and foot care for the homeless. Mt. Bethel will also give them a comfortable and safe place to stay for the night, and a ride back the following morning (this usually includes a sack lunch as well).

We need the help of volunteers from around the community to help! There are ways for those that don’t live in the Atlanta area to help too. Mt. Bethel needs donations of the following items:

  • Men’s Shoes (sizes 10 to 15+)
  • Women’s shoes (sizes 7 to 12)
  • Men’s T-shirts
  • Women’s T-shirts
  • White Socks
  • Men’s Underwear
  • Women’s Underwear
  • Reading Glasses (the kind you can pick up at Walmart for $5 or $10)

All donations can be sent to or dropped off at Mt. Bethel UMC – 4385 Lower Roswell Rd, Marietta, GA 30068.

Mt. Bethel & their Opening Our Doors ministry always need funds to help take care of our homeless friends and family. If you or your group come up with an idea, they will help in any way they can. For more information on how to register to volunteer with this event, donate, or ways to get involved in the future, visit their website.

People helping people, through service and private charity are the only way to start getting our country back on track. These solutions will not come from Washington, D.C. or their special interest groups. Mt. Bethel is my place of worship and church home. I have been really proud and impressed of the way my church is stepping up to the challenge to fight the problems in our community through our own service, charity and missions, as well of joining the effort of others in our area.

You can learn more about these ministries and ways to get involved on Mt. Bethel’s Facebook page & by following them on Twitter.
