Community Response

"Maribel,
God definitely had this plan for you. No doubt. May the Holy Spirit continue to guide you thru this journey."

"I will definitely do this and I have also forwarded it to some friends so they may do the same.
Thanks for everything you do everyday."

"Maribel, this is great. Just think that was Jesus sending you an email, thanking you for this blessed ministry. He placed it in your heart and you said yes once again to
Him. May The Lord keep blessing you with a healthy, believing family and may He always give you His peace."

"Dear Maribel,
Thank you for the update. Your efforts along with all who have contributed are truly God's hands working here on Earth. What a blessing!
I will begin working on your October deadline from this part of town!:)
Many blessings and God bless you for all your compassion with this mission."

"Hi Maribel,
My school wants to help collect things to help you guys make more backpacks. Let me know what you would like us to collect. If you need toiletries or any of those stuffed
animals. Please just let me know! We would LOVE to help!!!
Let me know"

"By bringing your used backpack to school and donating it, you can be an angel for a homeless person. The book packs will be cleaned, patched up, and distributed with
toiletries to the homeless. Come on and be an "angel"! Donation box is located in front of the Main Office."

"We will continue to support your efforts!!!"

"PLEASE LET ME KNOW DATES WHEN YOU NEED HELP. I WILL BE GLAD TO EXTEND A HELPING HAND.

CONTINUE THE GOOD WORK."

"i HAVE BACKPACKS TO DONATE AND TOILETRIES THAT I HAVE COLLECTED FROM HOTELS AND I WILL LOOK TO SEE IF I HAVE BLANKETS.

THANK YOU"
