"Someone who doesn’t know me really got this for me?"
This is a sentiment we often hear from clients who receive items from our
Urgent Needs Task Force Facebook group
! This group connects caring community members with MCCH clients who are in need of items to end their homelessness or thrive after ending their homelessness.
Even through the pandemic, these dedicated supporters have continued to provide urgently needed items to our clients! These items included summer clothes for the men at our shelter, no-touch thermometers, cupcakes and a gift card to celebrate one of our high school grads, and more!
Although it may seem like a small gesture, donating these items shows our clients that their community cares about them. When recovering from the trauma of homelessness, that reminder can be a glimmer of light in the darkness.
