To the Editor:
Just like many of us, my son Glenn Allen cannot believe it is already September. He is working on a project he has titled, "The Gift of Warmth." His intentions are to be able to help homeless people in Nashville to get through the cold winter days.
I believe this is a great project and will like to think that people will help by donating warm clothing, jackets, gloves and hats that will be distributed among them by the end of October.
It should be easy to get a great turnout, all we need is the support of ministers in the area. However we can use everyone's help regardless of race, religion or ethnicity. This project is intended to be a social project not a religious one.
We need a church in Gallatin, Hendersonville, Madison, Goodlettsville, Bethpage Lebanon and Nashville that will be willing to allow people to drop off the items and even announce the project to their congregations.
We can also use the help of institutions, factories, organizations. Again we are reaching out to everyone to be able to help everyone we can.
As we work together on this project, we will collect smiles and plant a seed of love among the less fortunate people.
I am inviting everyone to be a part of my son's vision and mission; a gift to the less fortunate people, they can be restored, renewed and provided with a reason to be thankful before Thanksgiving.
Love one another, love the less fortunate, express it with time and actions. Our labor is a result of our faith, therefore we can see visible the invisible and possible the impossible. We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.
