The Homeless Children in America




With this month of of November and Thanksgiving approaching, we must never forget the less fortunate. I was shock to find out that 1 in 50 children in America are homeless. With higher unemployment, home foreclosures, prices rising in gasoline and utilities, many families are without homes. How can we help these families and children? According to an article in "Better Homes and Garden's", November issue here are few things you and your family can do to help:


1.Donate "comfort items," such as teddy bears and soft blankets that the children can keep for themselves.

2. Go in with a friend and host a pizza party for kids at a local shelter.

3. Buy new school clothes supplies for a shelter. Items such as notebooks, backpacks, and books are needed.

Explain to your children the what it is like to be homeless and hopefully it will give them an understanding and compassion for the homeless children who are the innocent and sometimes forgotten victims of homelessness.
