June has been a month to celebrate! We raised funds for our work at the Brad Johnson Celebrity Golf Tournament presented by Wicked Weed at the beautiful Cliffs Community, welcomed new staff member Kathy Soule, and were happy to be the featured charity at Mission Health Partners Provider Meeting at Highland Brewing.
We continue to see a significant increase in the number of people requesting help from us with basic needs. The sharp increase in gas prices has hurt many of our neighbors, and we’ve helped a steady stream of neighbor’s travel to doctors’ appointments, job interviews and with the gap between securing a job and receiving that first paycheck!
June also brought the first taste of sweltering summer temperatures. A lot of the clients we serve are living in housing without air conditioning – so the fans we distribute can make the difference in preventing heat related injuries. We helped 40 households with fans already and have just received the next shipment to help another 40.
As always, we are grateful for your partnership and support in this work. If you’d like to get more involved, please don’t hesitate to contact us – your gift of time, treasure or talents would be helpful in serving our neighbors.
