More than 30,000 people are homeless in South Florida on any given day. We hope you will use this list to make your own essentials kit and keep it with you for the next time you see a person in need so that you can share God’s blessings and love.
MSPC continues to generously share its blessings during these challenging times through Pass it On Ministries. Donations of food are needed and can be dropped off anytime. Please click here for a list of the key items needed and drop off information.
