Dear Friends and Colleagues:
I cannot tell you how happy I am to be able to resume food distribution with our homeless and needy friends at Hudson County’s Journal Square in Jersey City, New Jersey after an extended illness.
On this rainy day Ali Hassan (of Muslims Against Hunger) delivered 70 lunches to our homeless and needy friends. We distributed 50 lunches in the rain. The homeless were happy to see us and thanked us for what they received.
Unfortunately, the homeless are being driven away from the Square and the PATH building refuses to let them come into the building to get warmth and shelter from the cold and wintry weather. SHAME on Fulop and the PATH administration for being so heartless with humans in dire need. The shelters are not expanding so where do the homeless go? Being forced to disburse makes finding them more difficult. I am truly saddened by the situation. I can only hope that more will be done to help them but will be very surprised if it actually happens. The industry of poverty exists to put money into the pockets of 501(C)3 corporations but little to rescue the homeless off the streets. SHAME on Fulop! SHAME on the industry of poverty which collects funds with little to no benefit to those languishing on the streets.
A big thank you and blessings go out to Muslims Against Hunger and the Sai Baba Center in North Brunswick, New Jersey for their many donations of food and other essentials as well.
I urge those who can to communicate with me so that we can do more for the homeless.
