On Saturday, February 27, ten volunteers from our church traveled to the Shelter of Flint to help prepare an apartment for transitional housing as well as to sort donated clothing and new toys for the guests there. The apartment needed the walls, ceilings, floors, refrigerator and stove washed. In addition, we installed new venetian blinds, a closet doorknob and a new kitchen light. Sorting the clothing makes it available to the guests. The new toys are sorted and saved in the “birthday closet” to serve as gifts for the children when their birthdays arrive. The Shelter of Flint is a multi-faceted organization that provides much-needed emergency and transitional housing for the homeless as well as numerous programs to help the homeless find their way to a better life.
