It's that time of year again.
This afternoon some of the boys unloaded about 6 tons of coal to start off the winter season.
At this time of year so many face an un certainty of what the winter will have in store. All you have to do is look at the mountains and you see winter is on the way. Every morning when you look out the snow cap is a little lower down the mountain until it finally reaches the Valley.
At the farm that translates into an influx of kids who's summer work is ending, and need in for the winter, but it means so much more to many of the families that we support. More than just food or clothing, they face a great need with heating.
Un able to heat their homes families begin to consider all options, even bringing their children to orphanages. Every year between the farm and the families that we help out, we use about 40 tons of coal.
We deliver it to a few different depots and then from their provide for families in need throughout the winter. Over 100 people will be kept warm and in some cases kept alive through this coal program.
Thank you to every one who donates to this need. Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks and see the impact that this is having on families in need.
