“The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.”
Alyson Goldberg, the parent sponsor for a group called the Cloudsdale Crusaders representing a small band of homeschoolers and their parents, along with other involved adults delivered a sizable quantity of warm blankets collected by their middle-school children to Wayside Christian Mission’s Hotel Louisville. This group emphasizes important life lessons including friendship, generosity, loyalty, kindness, and honesty. While visiting the hotel, the kids learned that many of their blankets will soon be distributed at homeless camps throughout the city by way of the mission’s Samaritan Patrol. These warm blankets will be given to those who need them most—and as cold weather has arrived early, their donated blankets will help save the lives of our most impoverished neighbors. The kids also made some greeting cards which will be distributed to the women in our Sober Living Program. We are grateful to these amazing kids who worked hard to collect these warm blankets. Hats off to the parents, too, who have instilled the value of charity in their children’s hearts.
