Volunteers represent so much more than just an extra hand, a home cooked meal, or a very generous donation. Volunteers are our family. Over the many years we have come to know them as a lifeline, someone to listen to our story, and someone to lift us up in times of trouble. Our volunteers have built lasting relationships with our staff and the men. Without them, we are only a fraction of our true self, and without volunteers we would not be weathering COVID-19.
The outpour of support from our volunteers has brought so many blessings. From meal drop-offs, financial donations, and participation in events to kindhearted letters of support to the men. A true silver lining in this unprecedented time, and a blessing as we enter the holiday season.
Even though this year will be drastically different from normal, with your help, we are making great strides in keeping the festive spirit alive. Our development team has received mountains of holiday letters from local schools, churches, and businesses. Those letters will be handed out to the men each week. Many of our groups are also planning homecooked holiday meals, and even catering dinners for the guys. The holiday donation drives have already kicked off and we are receiving donations of coats, toiletries, and clothing that will go a very long way towards keeping the men warm and comfortable this winter.
