Homeless Fall

Homeless Fall

The brilliant colors of autumn have come right on schedule to the Servants of the Father of Mercy, children, youth and families.  Last week at “Youth & Family Night” (always the last Friday of each month from 6p – 9p), the gang got together to express their creativity and make “fall pinecone trees” as centerpieces for Halloween and Thanksgiving home and office decorations.  All-in-all, this unique fundraiser for the homeless people we serve includes 100 pinecone works of art.  Each cone, depending on its size, is potted in a small, medium or large Italian clay pot and decorated with fall leaves, moss, pumpkins and ribbons.  The families plan to sell them door-to-door, to businesses and church goers.  The suggested donation for each piece is $5, $10 or $15 depending on size.  If you plan to order one online, let us know via email and be sure to include an extra $7.00 for boxing, bubble wrap and shipping.  Email us your shipping address at and donate any amount you wish to our homeless family easily online at ; you can post checks as well.  Send to Servants of the Father of Mercy, P. O. Box 42001, Los Angeles, CA 90042.  All donations are tax deductible and will be used for Thanksgiving and Christmas StreetReach to homeless living under bridges and in alleyways; delivering to them food, water, clothing, blankets, spiritual supplies and more.  Enjoy the pictures!
