Donor Gives Homeless Week In Motel
In Colorado Springs, a woman walked into the Express Inn and insisted that her $640 pay for four rooms for homeless men and women camping along Fountain Creek.
The woman told the staff at C-C Boarding Home Annex, a nonprofit that sublets rooms from the motel for disabled veterans and people on social security, that her name was Linda Craft and that God told her to pay for the rooms.
This week isn’t the first time the Express Inn has been used as a shelter. At the first freeze this year, Nam Tiggemann and her son Barry Tiggemann, part owners of the home annex, invited campers to get in out of the cold.
A Christmas dinner for the homeless will be held at the motel today, followed by a meal at the motel Friday put on by Woodmen Valley Chapel.
“Everyone is going to be eating well this Christmas,” said Brian Puerta, resident services coordinator with C-C Boarding Home Annex.Click here for reuse options!
