“The People have Suffered Enough”
MoSP’s free public program Thursday, January 19, 6:30 pm in the Hanke Room at the Ethical Society of St. Louis, 9001 Clayton Road. *Reverend Larry Rice, champion of the disenfranchised and the poor, will discuss simple, revolutionary solutions to alleviate suffering and help St. Louis’ homeless and their families overcome poverty.
If necessary, cancellations due to extreme weather will be posted at 2 pm on Thursday here on the website.
*Reverend Rice has founded shelters for the homeless in St. Louis, Jefferson City, Columbia, Kansas City, Springfield, Marshfield, Branson and Joplin; in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and in East St. Louis and Decatur, Illinois.
As founder and director of new life Evangelistic Center at 1411 Locust St. in St. Louis, he helped start the following services: Medical Clinic, Assistance programs for food, rent, utility and funeral expenses, Adult Literacy Class, Winter Patrol, The Summer Distribution Programs of fans and air conditioners, The Winter Distribution of blankets, heaters and insulation kits, Apartment and job Referral, Transportation Assistance, Violence Prevention Classes, and Computer Training.
Rev. Rice co-founded The Dollar Help Program with Sister Pat Kelly at the Laclede Gas Company in St. Louis. This program has raised several million dollars to help the needy pay gas bills during the winter months by encouraging people to add $1 to their gas payments to help those who struggle to pay their bills.
He founded The Missouri Coalition for the Homeless, which advocates to fight the cycle of homelessness through legislation and public awareness.
