Letter: A bigger mission
Thank you for the photograph of Marc Johnson distributing tents and sleeping bags to our homeless neighbors in Concord (“Care Packages,” Sunday Monitor front page, March 31).
Johnson is one of the many board members and volunteers at the Open Hands Resource Center, which has not only provided the items stated but also makes available a variety of goods including clothing, food, a place of respite from the elements, as well as an encouraging word, practical advice and a faith-based message to those in need.
I have observed board members and volunteers interacting with the people they serve, and I am inspired by their dedication to this resource center.
I encourage a member of the Monitor staff to visit the Open Hands Resource Center to write a more in-depth story about this faith-based out reach ministry for the Concord area and to become more familiar with their mission and ways in which a Concord area community member can support this valuable resource.
