1/8/2010 – Shelter Spotlight

January 8, 2010


Hey Folks, it’s day #8 of Operation:365 and boy are we growing in size and scope. Today, I want you to reflect for a moment, and imagine a world without your Blackberry, iPhones, Facebook, Twitters, and CNN. I want you to imagine what it would be like without Fox News, without ESPN and maybe without a vast food choice you get to normally have each night at dinner. I want you to think about what you can do for maybe an hour out of your week, to help someone less fortunate. Maybe give them a bag lunch, or help them cross the street, or even take them to a doctor, but let it be something because to them no matter what, it’s worth the effort.

Todays “Shelter Spotlight” is going to focus on a great soup kitchen in Homestead, FL. The Homestead Soup Kitchen has served about 800,000 meals since 1984, and continues to grow with each and every service. Guided by Ms. Juanita Smith, Homestead Soup Kitchen serves the surrounding communities by offering hot meals and comfort to those who are in need. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such drive and commitment displayed by a Board of Directors in my many years in the financial services marketplace. Homestead Soup Kitchen is located at 105 SW 3rd Ave, Homestead, Florida 33090 and, can be reached at (305) 245-7448.

“It is the mission of the Homestead Soup Kitchen to serve those members of our community in need of a hot meal, regardless of circumstances. By having a “no questions asked” policy, the Soup Kitchen provides in excess of 700 meals a week to people and families of the Greater Homestead/Florida City area and beyond”. – From Their Website – http://www.homesteadsoupkitchen.com
