Christmas for the Homeless
The Nomad Trust is part of YMCA Lincolnshire. Although we are part of a much larger movement, YMCA Lincolnshire is a stand-alone Registered Charity. We are responsible for finding our own funding for our projects in Lincolnshire and our project in Romania.
At The Nomad Trust we support the homeless and those in greatest need within our community. We have a Night Shelter and support facilities and would like to bring a little Christmas cheer to the homeless.
Within the Lincoln area we know of 86 individuals who are homeless and we would like to do 3 things for them this Christmas with your help:
1. Provide a Christmas Box
This would contain little gifts such as toiletries , hat, scraf and gloves, socks, chocolate etc.
2. A Christmas Lunch
Served by our staff and volunteers. To make our Homeless individuals Christmas special and to show as a community: We Care
3. Give each person a pair of Boots or Shoes
For most homeless people their only mode of transport is their feet. YMCA Lincolnshire would like to try and alleviate many foot problems by providing a decent pair of boots or shoes.
Being Homeless makes people very isolated and at a time of year when the rest of us look forward to our Christmas Celebrations, homeless individuals can feel even more lonely. Through this project The Nomad Trust want's to offer friendship and support for a brighter future in 2016.
