Charity Choice Monday – St. Francis House – Real Change 5
St. Francis House, Seattle quietly, humbly and modestly feeds and clothes the poor in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi‘s prayer:
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
The agency has an Amazon WishList and “also chronic shortages of items like: gift cards (gasoline and grocery stores); diapers; jeans, belts and hats for men; sleeping bags; backpacks and duffel bags; coats for men, women and children; men’s white socks and underwear.
St. Francis House, like Real Change, understands that one small action can make all the difference.
