An envelope with 18 cents inside was left as an offering at a Charlotte, North Carolina, church last Sunday, according to The Huffington Post.
Church members say they were deeply moved by the “powerful” gift.
“Please don’t be mad, I don’t have much,” someone wrote on the outside of the envelope, left in a collection plate at First United Methodist Church. “I’m homeless. God Bless.”
According to WCNC, the First United Methodist Church in uptown Charlotte is nestled between a homeless shelter in one direction [and] the big banks in the other.
