TO BE RESCHEDULED

Dear Friends of One Man’s Treasure,

 

Out of concern for the guests who were going to be in attendance and in an abundance of caution with the current COVID-19 concerns, our Board decided on Friday to delay the Crystal Gala and raffle planned for March 26th to an available Thursday in June. It is our hope that this virus outbreak will be over and we can gather together safely for a memorable evening at that time. We will monitor the situation and notify you as soon as the new date is confirmed for a June gala or later if the situation warrants. Gala and raffle tickets that were already purchased are much appreciated and will be honored at the rescheduled event.

At the present time, we continue to receive applications and deliver the sets of clothing to the men who apply.  In reflecting on the challenge of continuing the program under these current circumstances, I thought about how the men we serve have waited years to walk through the prison gates into the free world and, unfortunately, they are now walking into the chaos of this time faced with the usual challenges to successful reentry and only the $100 given to them when released as their financial resource.  Additionally, the opportunities that they had for employment that had been increasing with the improved job market and economy is now lower.  It must be pretty overwhelming for them.  Understanding these challenges, we will continue to provide their immediate clothing needs in the days ahead within any government directives and following health safety guidelines.

We are reminded of this message of faith that we hope our community and nation will hold on to in the days ahead. It is  the message that we will share with the men we serve. "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9  This we know -  God is good, He is faithful and He will bring us through this together.

This is a time for prayer. We will continue to pray specifically for these returning men and those still incarcerated who are no longer able to receive visitors as we pray for all people who are ill and frightened, for those in charge of combating this virus, for God's guidance for our ministry and those organizations ministering to others in need, and for each of you who are part of One Man’s Treasure and your families. We pray that the spirit of fear be lifted and trust be placed in Him.  We ask that you join us in that prayer.

On behalf of our Board of Directors and staff, thank you again for your support of One Man's Treasure and the men it serves.  May God bless and keep you safe and healthy.
