Attention Men of @F3 Swamp Rabbit!  The time has come!  We need your help this Chrismas!

Operation Sweet Tooth has launched, and it is time for you to answer the call.

The Mission:  Keep 8-year old Sweet Tooth’s memory alive.  Let her parents, Olive (F3 Nation) and Jager (FiA Nation), know that she lives on in the Hearts of the PAX through their own for the Greenville community.

The Reason:  Our brother Olive shared his story with us earlier this year.  Read it here….or here.

The Need:  Toys, Gift Cards, and clothes for the following families.

To honor the memory of Sweet Tooth, F3 Swamp Rabbit is partnering with the Greenville Area Interfaith Hospitality Network (GAIHN) to meet the needs of these two families served by the GAIHN Ministry.  This is what they do:

The Greenville Area IHN is a coalition of forty-two religious congregations collectively called GAIHN (Greenville Area Interfaith Hospitality Network). Uniting volunteers and facilities from diverse religious communities and faith traditions, GAIHN provides homeless families with safe, secure shelter while offering emergency assistance (including superb transitional housing), strategies to obtain affordable housing and permanent employment, and appropriate referral and guidance to help reintegrate families into the community as quickly as possible.

To put it in simple terms, they keep families who are homeless together, and assist them in getting back on their feet through different programs, including Homes of Hope which is where we partner with #GideonsHouse. Without our help, these families would not have a Christmas to speak of, and so we need your help with these requests:

The Cornell Family: This single mother has 3 children, and here are their requests:

  • Javion, 1 month old – Needs a Pack N’ Play, 0-3 month onesies, 0-3 month sleepers, bottles, rattles, receiving blankets, and bottles.
  • Jamez, 6 year old boy – Learning games, puzzles, socks, Size 5-6 pants, Size S boys shirts, Size 1 shoes, size small coat
  • Delavias 11 year old boy – 18 regular pants, Size L boys shirts, Size 9-9/12 shoes, Playstation 3 games, socks, size 10-12 coat
  • Diane, 31 year old mom – Makeup set, Size 5-6 pants, Small Womens shirts, Size 8 Shoes, Size M coat

The Bailey Family: This single father has a son, and here are their requests:

  • Kobe, 10 year old boy – basketball, skateboard, football, size 10 pants, size 10 shirts, size 4 1/2 shoes, size 10 coat, favorite color is red, favorite sport is basketball
  • Edward, 58 year old father – fishing pole, size 32 – 30 jeans, size 8 1/2 sneakers or boots, Size L shirts, Size L coat, favorite color is beige, favorite activity is fishing

Men, it’s time to honor the life of Sweet Tooth, and provide for the needs of those who otherwise are not able to provide for themselves.  These families are working hard to make ends meet, and without the men of F3, they will not have a Christmas to celebrate. We need Pax who are willing to collect donations at your AOs, and gather them up to bring to the Thanksgiving Convergence at Legacy, the F3 Christmas Party, or #GoldenStrip  in between the 2.  We need to get all donations, monetary, gift cards, or otherwise, by the Christmas Party on December 10th so we can get these back to GAIHN in time for Christmas.  Be generous, be giving, and let’s show @Olive and @F3Nation what the #ShieldLock looks like.

Aye brothers,

ACA, Footloose, and Floppy Disc
