Help The Homeless – I just wanted to reach out to our community for personal support of MY ministry. Each Monday myself and my family as well as a group of 20 or so volunteers get together to feed and help 200-250 homeless in downtown Jacksonville . We also provide FREE laundry services to any one in need on Monday evenings. While most of the food and supplies are donated, laundry costs us. We have started the “Quarter Crusade” to help raise money for laundry services. PLEASE click here or visit www.QuarterCrusade.com to learn more! Mike Linkenauger
