Masks, hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, gloves, and bottled water are needed!
Your gifts will enable us to keep giving them away!
Friday, May 22 was another exciting milestone in the life of Operation Care International (OCI). We became a fulfillment center of PPE’s (Personal Protective Equipment) and provided food for the homeless at the shelters and other ministries in Dallas. We call it Joseph’s Storehouse, and your giving has made this possible!
It started on March 21 when we began distributing pallets of hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, gloves, and masks to 2 shelters. We gave again to 4 shelters on April 11. God put it on our hearts to become a North Texas fulfillment center specifically for PPE’s for the homeless shelters. In two months’ time, our May outreach expanded exponentially to 10 shelters and ministries. Susie Jennings, Founder of Operation Care International, said, “We were focusing on PPE only and then God saw the need to provide food as well, and HE made it happen.”
Union Gospel Mission (UGM) Dallas thanks OCI for supplying the much-needed PPE and food. Rev Bruce Butler said that “the hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, masks, and gloves, helped the homeless staying at UGM to be virus-free. Nobody on our staff or the homeless we serve has tested positive for COVID-19.”
