Five for the Homeless prepares for the winter

November 7, 2013

For the past year, John Shafer has been on a mission to bring warmth to the homeless of Chicago and Michiana.
On Oct. 26, he took a group to Chicago again to provide individuals living on the streets with care packages and blankets, like he does at least once a month.
"We went to Chicago for a shopping trip with a friend," he explained as he told the story of his decision to start the Chicago and Michiana Five for the Homeless organization.

A helping hand: Group aims to help the homeless

September 1, 2013

NAPPANEE — During a Christmas shopping trip to Chicago in November, 2012, John Shafer was touched by the many homeless people filling the streets. Shafer immediately felt the need to help them.
“I thought in a city of three million, if everyone could give five hours – or as little as $5 – what a difference that could make for those people,” said Shafer. “But I didn’t really think I personally could do anything, I’m just one person.”
Thoughts of how he could possibly help those with no roof over their heads continued to fill the Nappanee resident’s mind.

What we want may not be the best thing for us

August 29, 2013

“In the Dailyness of Life ...”

On our recent two week vacation, I had a plan. I wanted to see a moose.
After all, Maine is known for them and we’d be spending four nights there and two in New Hampshire as well.
While in Acadia National Park, I made sure to ask the park rangers for the best directions to view these awesome creatures.
I’d seen them years ago when we’d camped in Yellowstone; I hoped to be able to see them up close and personal again.
But, my idea of moose viewing was hastily halted when I learned that the best place to see them was actually a 2-3 hour further drive.
