Spreading the Holiday Cheer

The Holiday Season is in full swing and it is truly evident by the number of donations and inquiries that are coming to us for our 2017 Holiday Initiative. Thank you one and all!

12_Clients at the shelterThis year we have more clients than ever and our goal is to provide the basic, general necessities they need as well as the items they may need when comfort and care are key to their survival. Basic necessities include hats, scarves, gloves, socks, and rain ponchos. Cough drops, band aids, postage stamps, chapstick, combs and brushes are examples of items that clients need on a less frequent basis but which are also necessary. And of course, gift cards – the gift of a hot drink time in a coffee shop on a winter’s afternoon when the Day Center is closed and the winter shelter yet to open. Gift cards also provide a personal item of clothing, gas for a car, or, perhaps, special food for a dietary requirement. All these items bring comfort and joy to our clients.
