Tangible Help

Joe Carter at Evangelical Outpost shares one small, tangible thing that he and his coworkers are doing to help the victims of the Gulf Coast hurricane:

...we want to meet the tangible immediate needs of people who are suffering in the wake of this disaster. CBHD shares this desire and is firmly committed to the idea that issues of life and health must be dealt with in a way that recognizes the innate dignity of human beings. To that end, the Center is collecting used eyeglasses and new packages of disposable contact lenses to distribute to people impacted by the hurricane. No doubt many of our fellow citizens have lost their glasses and contact lens supplies and are in need of an interim solution. By providing them with temporary replacements, we help them regain control over one of the most basic functions of living.

Please ship your used eyeglasses or new disposable contact lenses in a padded envelope to:
