Recently, my church, Wade Memorial Presbyterian, joined the Lancaster Area Coalition for the Homeless, HOPE of Lancaster Inc. and the Lancaster County Council on Aging to help raise money for the homeless here.
I asked if anyone would like to spend the night and sleep like the homeless do. I was able to turn in $70 in donations. My son, Sam, agreed to represent his church, St. Luke United Methodist Church, and do this with me. On Sept. 25, we both slept inside a cardboard box at the fairgrounds, where it rained most of the night.
