On a beautiful, very pleasant morning around 9 am on April 22, 2018 we did another distribution among the homeless on Broadway in Knoxville TN. We set up tables immediately and had them form a line, which helped a lot with distribution.
Bob Eklund write, “While I was at the table distributing socks and plastic grocery bags a lady said to me ‘It is really nice that ya’ll care about us. It feels like no one else does.’ I also heard a lot of thank-you’s. Like everyone else it was hard to see the looks on people’s faces who didn’t get there in time to get anything. Comments among us “There will always be someone left out no matter how much we bring. Their sadness is hard to take.”
We distributed sandwiches, snacks and juice drinks, socks, T shirts, bottles of water, toiletry kits (shampoo, body wash, toothbrush, toothpaste, lip balm), women’s toiletry kits and some women’s clothing.
