A new year is upon us and we’ve just “wrapped” up a wonderful holiday season. I’m so thankful for all that we accomplished in 2019 and for all the support and dedication that you and many others provided to us and the Fellowship House residents.
The magic of the season is in the spirit of giving and that magic brings a number of blessings to the residents who call Fellowship House their home. The warm generosity you and so many others have shown us continues to make a positive difference in the lives of our residents.
In 2019, numerous churches, business and individuals gave generously. We achieved many goals we set for ourselves and closed the year with the residents feeling like they are part of a family.
Some of the holiday highlights worth mentioning - Fellowship House residents received turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner; we held a successful canned food drive that fully stocked the new food pantry at Largo Landing Fellowship House; new yoga and Zumba classes have started; and volunteers served hot meals and planned memorable celebrations at each Fellowship House.
We’re especially proud to be kicking off our 60
Anniversary year (2020) with so many generous donors, community partners, Board Members, volunteers and supporters. We are making tremendous progress to renovate and modernize two of our Fellowship Houses (Lake Anne and Hunters Woods); add more programs and services for residents; and elevate our property management operations to resident-centered and industry best practices. These efforts have taken much dedication and attention from staff – both Fellowship Square staff and the SL Nusbaum staff who manage our properties every day.
Each time I visit a Fellowship House, residents tell me how much they appreciate all that we do for them – and that’s only possible because of your willingness to give. Whether through your time, talents or treasure, your support shows them that there are people who care and people who are willing to lend something of themselves to make the residents’ lives a little better.
I greatly appreciate your generous support in 2019 and I look forward to counting you as a valuable supporter during our 60
