On the Bright Side
In times like these it's important to notice the good things. We want to share the moments along the way that help tell the story of Spokane's strength in community. This was a nice story from one of our community centers when we checked in with them this week:
So far so good, youth program is running strong and we not only have our regular youth we are helping feed and have activities for the neighborhood youth. Today there were two children at the park with their grandfather. He has full custody and just got out of the hospital with pneumonia. We invited them to join us for lunch. He had lunch then needed to go home to take a nap. We offered to watch his grandchildren. He was very relieved as he was worried about them while he was napping. His medication knocks him out. They were thrilled to get to hang with their friends and not have to be in the apartment.
This is the 3rd family we have been able to help.
While there is concern we are meeting many people and bonding because of what we are all going through."
A great example of the spirit of Spokane!
