Following Master’s loving reminder to help those in need, and keeping the Christmas spirit, our Association members from Arizona Center contributed approximately US$2,883 and purchased warm clothes, socks, blankets, fruits and vegan snacks. As always, funds are available from Master for reimbursement for relief work. We organize this event annually to distribute much needed supplies to those less fortunate.
On December 23, 2013, we visited the shelters for homeless individuals in downtown Phoenix, the capital city, and distributed all the items. Many people joyfully modeled the clothes they received and were very thankful for the gifts. As we were leaving, people stood by the sidewalks and warmly bid us farewell.
We would like to thank Master for teaching us to be more compassionate and loving to each other so that the world can be a peaceful and Heavenly place.
