On Saturday April 19, 2014 The Stand Your Ground 2 Spring Break Event will be held at the Scottish Rite Temple at 1330 East Linwood, in Kansas City MO.
On Saturday, April 19, 2014, Care Of Poor People Inc. will be having the “Stand Your Ground” event. If you are involved with feeding and clothing the poor of Kansas City on our streets, I need your help. Our right to help the poor and homeless is under attack. This concerns every citizen in our community that cares about their brothers and sisters on the street. It is hoped, that we can bring together enough of the various organizations and individuals to show in solidarity that we are not going to just stand by and let laws get passed, that are detrimental to the poor and homeless of our community .
In America, laws are passed in local municipals, state, and federal government laws that hurt or changed a person’s rights to live and prosper. The bureaucrats need to know your organization and the average person cares about the rights of the poor and homeless and our right to help them. There are many towns that are passing laws limiting your rights and also make it illegal of giving food and materials to those you see in need. How can the poor and homeless be helped enough to survive?
Our city fathers or certain individuals feel shelters is the only way to keep the homeless off the streets. If we cannot help support them, where is the money to house and feed the homeless? There are over 15,000 homeless in Kansas City area while there being 2,500 beds in shelters. Working with and once living as a street person, I can say many homeless persons would never enter a shelter. A lot of those shelters are worse than some of our prisons in this country. Except in prisons bedbugs are not a problem.
Please join care of poor people and trying to make a difference for those in need and are hurting in our community this coming Saturday, April 19, 2014 “Stand Your Ground” event . Don’t let the systems take away your rights to help the poor and homeless. If this happens, what is next? I truly believe it is necessary to “Stand Your Ground.” This is , Richard G Tripp Director of Care of Poor P Inc. For further information, Please go to: www.COPPInc.com

A new approach to help Kansas city’s homeless Survive? As most are aware for over 30 years Care Of Poor People has done everything possible to provide the materials the poor and homeless need to survive. In todays world many not for profits give tax rite offs for used cars and other materials to help the poor, most of those car donations and trucks and the like are used to sell for money to run their programs.
We at Care Of Poor People, would like to try a new experiment? Do you have a older rv or truck camper that you would like to donate for a tax write-off ? In fair shape? that we could house the poor and homeless in? If you do please call the director of Care Of Poor People and let him know about it. Were also trying to find abandoned property’s that we could set one or two campers in on concrete drive ways or parking lots were we could set them up to help those hurting, if you have any ideals please call Richard G Tripp at COPP INC at 816-920-6119 or email him at www.coppinc.com
Sitting here tonight VERY TIRED after an awesome event today. My feet and my back hurt, but my heart is awed by the hard work of all who worked soooooooo hard to pull this event together. Worked with ALOT OF AWESOME UNPAID VOLUNTEERS who pitched in to all work together to reach out to alot of people today who needed to know somebody cared. AND ALL OUR HARD WORK SENT A MESSAGE LOUD AN CLEAR THAT… THERE ARE SOOOOOOO MANY PEOPLE WHO CARE !!!!!! When we all bring our special gifts and skills together; be it muscles for lifting, organizational skills for planning, caring hearts finding a way to help hold a bag, carry a tray or cook and serve food, construction guys building a ramp to make sure everyone could get in, teens who did WHATEVER we ask them to do without complaining, guys loading and unloading the trucks and then loading and unloading them again, and even the little ones who helped retrieve the stored bags in the parking lot with the biggest smiles on their faces…..when we all work with each other, lift each other up, and join hands together, not only are we a blessing to others, BUT WE ARE BLESSED in return. Thanks for all those we didn’t meet personally who gave the donations. Thanks to all of you for the time taken out of your own personal lives this weekend to come serve others when you could have been relaxing at home or shopping like so many chose to do! IT WAS A PLEASURE AND AN HONOR TO HAVE WORKED WITH AND BESIDE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Somewhere tonight, there are people on the streets in our city a little warmer both physically and emotionally in the thought that for today anyway, THEY WERE NOT FORGOTTEN!!!!!!! And each and every one who worked so tirelessly for this event helped make that happen.
