Twin sisters Renee Mendonca and Rhea Mendonca of Cleveland OH have delivered more than 1000 sanitizer kits and food cans to homeless people living on the streets. Renee said “The people most forgotten during these crisis are the homeless population. Everyone is worried about the safety of their families”. Rhea added "People are in a panic frenzy and stocking their houses with food, toilet papers leaving the shelves in the stores empty.
Renee and Rhea urged their team members from Wings of Hope to help assemble kits of hand sanitizers, antibacterial soaps, lotions, reusable masks, food cans, juices for free distribution to the homelessness to protect them from the deadly Covid-19 virus.
Many food pantries have closed down and the poor are left with no food while the rich have hoarded their garages and houses with food.
The twin teens organized a garage sale of their own personal items like clothes, shoes, books, bags, socks, coats, gloves, shawls inorder to raise funds and buy sanitation kits and food cans for the homeless.
The twin also started a GoFundMe account to raise funds to expand their programand plan to donate funds to countries like India, Malawi, Haiti where they have limited resources to handle such crisis. "It's important that during this crisis we unite under the table of brotherhood, to lend a helping hand to those who most need it, even if it means donating one dollar, one sanitizer or one food can. Every small gesture has a ripple effect. Last year, Renee and Rhea raised $10,000 which they donated to St. Jude Hospital.
What drives these two ladies? They said they are "grateful to have a roof over their head, food on the table and clothing" and feel it is their duty to reach out to the helpless and the homeless during these turbulent times.
