Homeless people still need water!
Even though cold weather is coming, people still need drinking water or dehydration will cause a multitude of health problems. When you don’t get enough water, your body experiences a breakdown that can span from headache, dry skin and dizziness to a rapid heart rate, lethargy, confusion, seizures, shock and possibly even coma!
Safe, clean drinking water is not a luxury, but the human body’s most fundamental need. Unfortunately, it’s a basic need that many homeless individuals too often go without. Homeless individuals find it hard to get water. When they receive water from New Life’s First Responders, they thank God for every bottle of cold water they receive. The also save their empty bottles to refill them every chance they get. Many of these homeless individuals know how difficult it is for one without a home to even find a water fountain they can use to get cold water from.
Over 500 homeless people in just St. Louis and Springfield, Missouri are depending on the NLEC staff for their drinking water each day. To keep up with this need we must acquire about 25,000 bottles of water each month.
Thanks to generous people just like you, New Life Evangelistic Center has been working to bring clean drinking water and other basic survival necessities to homeless people in Missouri since 1972. Together, we’ve distributed over 3 million water bottles to those in desperate need in the past 10 years, and that number continues to climb!
Will you help New Life get water for the homeless men, women and children who are in desperate need not only in the heat of the summer, but during the rest of the year as well?
Your gift of $100 will help us provide 720 bottles of cold water. A gift of $250 will allow us to provide 1,800 bottles of water to the homeless in these hot summer days. Remember, we need 25,000 just this month!
Jesus said, “As often as you have done it to the least of these you have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:40). Jesus promised in Matthew 10:42 that, “Whoever gives one of these little ones even a cup of cold water will by no means lose his reward.”
Please do not delay. The homeless need water today.
Your gift to New Life Evangelistic Center will help provide clean drinking water to someone whose life depends on it. No amount is too big or too small to help save lives!
Please give generously. Every donation makes an impact.
Yours in Christ,
New Life Evangelistic Center First Responders
