Abuse at Christmas Time?

The Salvation Army assist so many people at Christmas time and down in Werribee, Community Support Services have been flat out giving out toys, vouchers, food, etc. Unfortunately there is such a great need, that the place is fully booked and cannot cater for any more people... What happens next makes it tough for volunteer staff, because there are constantly people ringing who need help, but it's impossible to help them (There's not enough time, money and staff). Sometimes this is followed by verbal abuse from the community...

My thanks goes out to the staff of Salvation Army programs that are working tirelessly to assist those in need this Christmas. May the love of Jesus empower you as you work hard this coming week, even through the tough times....

I pray that the Lord will allow the Salvation Army to assist more and more into our communities, so that people are not left stranded and unassisted in following years. But praise God for the huge amount of blessing given to so many this Christmas.
