Reaching Out to the Corona Homeless Population
Northpoint Church is again partnering with the city of Corona to reach out to the homeless population in our community this holiday season. Because of the pandemic and the general rise of homeless people in Corona, the city of Corona is working with CityNet, a non-profit organization, on a community mobilization program, Make It Cozy. The program accepts donated furnishings (gently used and in great shape), to support emergency shelter graduates with permanent housing opportunities.
That’s an amazing outreach, but at Northpoint, we want to step it up a bit with Make It (Really) Cozy! With Make It (Really) Cozy, we want to collect new items (in their original packaging) to donate. What are we looking for?
• Mini or small crock pots
• Small toaster ovens
• Mr. Coffee Pots
• Foreman Grills
• Small countertop microwaves
Also, donations can be made to help purchase apartment-sized refrigerators (14-18 cf max).
In addition, a “Note of Compassion” to each recipient can be included with each purchase/donation. It would be great to write Bible verses, words of encouragement, reminders of God’s love, and a reassurance that the people at Northpoint are ready to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Our efforts will last from November 28 until December 19. Donations can be brought into the Church Office during the week or to the Foyer on Sundays.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact Colin Cordill at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Church Office at 951.734.1335.
