On Tuesday night, March 19th, Doyle spoke in Evergreen for Cub Scout Pack 119 about Sox Place and compassion.  Rob Lantz, one of our board members, is the pack leader.  Thanks, Pack 119, for having Doyle speak and for the socks you brought!

Strange Wind
by Shel Silverstein

What a strange wind it was today,
Whistlin’ and whilin’ and scurlin’ away
Like a worried old woman with so much to say.
What a strange wind it was today.

What a strange wind it was today.
Cool and clear from a sky not grey
And my hat stayed on but my head blew away—
What a strange wind it was today.

The weather in Denver can change in an instant.  Winter days can be 70 and sunny or crazy winds and blowing snow.  While this is a mere inconvenience to most, for a homeless kid, it is a battle.

On the streets, a good coat can mean the difference between a good night’s rest and a sleepless night.  The difference between frost bite and warm fingers and toes.  The difference between being wet and cold for days on end or warm and dry.  The difference between sickness and wellness.

A couple weeks ago, we said that we were in need of winter clothes, and look what you, our donors, came up with!  Thank you!  You have made a difference!

Tyler did his Eagle Scout project by organizing a donation drive for Sox Place.  Look at some of the items that were collected!

We had several groups donate their time, money, and a week of summer vacation to help us out.  Here’s one of the groups from Austin Bluffs Community Church in Colorado Springs.  We’ve also had groups from Pryor OK and Farmington NM!

We can’t run Sox Place without donations.  Thank you to all who donate!
