Mennonite volunteers help homeless womenby Mennonite Mission Network
DENVER—DEO (Discipleship, Encounter, Outreach) participant Kim Driedger of Leamington (Ont.) United Mennonite Church sorts clothes at The Gathering Place, Denver’s only day shelter for homeless women and children. Several times each month, women are invited to help themselves to donated clothing.
With the typical decrease in donations after the holidays, The Gathering Place was short on warm clothes—boots, hats and scarves. Lucia Ishikawa, volunteer resources manager, says Denver’s exceptionally snowy weather this winter has been extra difficult for the 300 clients they serve.
Serving with Driedger in Denver this year are Mary Goering of First Mennonite Church, Newton, Kan., and Jessica Penner of Pleasant Valley Mennonite Church, Harper, Kan.\
