“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals.”

2023 Alabama Meditation Network

Winter Clothing Drive

Deadline: Dec. 31, 2023
Drop-off Locations: (Check each website for times)

Winter weather is here and as we retreat indoors to escape the plunging temperature and spend time with our loved ones during the holiday season, let us not forget our homeless brothers and sisters, for winter is the hardest time of the year for our friends on the streets.

Homelessness isn’t just the lack of a roof over one’s head, it also represents the lack of means to acquire the most basic human comforts of warmth, health, safety and cleanliness. Regardless of our own perceived security, tomorrow any of us may find ourselves walking in their shoes. Therefore, we at the Alabama Meditation Network would like to announce the launch of the 2023 AMN Winter Clothing Drive.

Our participating meditation partners will accept donations of the following items until Dec. 31
