Since the beginning of the pandemic, Director Julia Orlando sought to reduce the number of residents in the county shelter in order to allow for social distancing. Little by little, shelter residents were moved into local motels. The last 20 or so were placed on April 17th. Our main concern was how the former residents and those from the community who utilize the dinner program would continue to be fed. As they are known to do, a small corps of Family Promise volunteers stepped forward and agreed to pack meals to-go, deliver them to the former shelter residents at their motel rooms, and serve the community meals off of the loading dock. I am moved by the unshakable dedication of our volunteers and reminded daily that if everyone does something, we will get through this.
