Volunteers hand out over 80 donated sleeping bags to homeless

Before sunrise on a cold Easter Sunday, good Samaritans Roy Foster and Kathy Powell, along with a few other dedicated volunteers, handed out over 80 donated sleeping bags to the homeless at the Armory in Ventura. These bags have been donated by neighbors and friends and collected by Roy and Kathy. The Armory, which is used as a winter shelter for homeless people, was being closed for the season. Roy stated ”It makes me feel wonderful when I see some homeless in Ventura in possession of the sleeping bags that they were given. This will keep them much more comfortable during the cold nights.”
