The Green Team Ministry Helps The Homeless And Hungry

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- What's your reaction when you see someone holding a sign that says, "I'm Homeless and Hungry, Please Help?"

Many probably walk or drive past without a second thought. Friday, on the Good Morning Show, Ashley Benton, the founder of the Green Team Ministry gave us a reason to care.

"I know it has to feel dehumanizing when people just walk past you. It's like being invisible," said Benton. "I don't want them to be judged."

When others tend to walk away from the homeless, Benton gives them a reason to smile.

"When they see us get out of the car their looks just change to a look of relief, I love you, I'm so glad to see you and that just keeps me motivated to keep coming back," said Benton.

The Green Team Ministry visits and feeds those in need once a week, which is often the only consistent meal they can count on.

"They have no where to go to use the bathroom, to take a bath or to even get a drink of water. Sometimes its sweltering hot outside," said Benton. "It can be so cold and there's no where to go."

Benton and her crew of Green Team Ministry volunteers will be feeding 250 homeless and hungry people in our community on Sunday, July 20, 2014.

They have enough food and enough money for this event. What they need is your time and your donations to keep this going for weeks, months and years to come.

You can meet them at Center City Park in Downtown Greensboro at 12:30 p.m. Sunday to help out.
