21 Jul Summertime at Sophia’s Place
Posted at 13:55h in spotlight
Michelle Carr, Evening Shelter Supervisor at Sophia’s Place shares a few wonderful stories of summertime activities at the shelter.
With summer finally here, our residents have been spending more and more time outside, enjoying the warm and beautiful evenings in the garden and patio area.
The night shelter is participating in a group Summer Reading Challenge that runs until the end of August. Our goal is to read (as a community) 25 books in 50 days. We have a bunch of avid readers who have already finished reading 13 books!
Recently, we had a bunch of bananas donated. To get the most out of them before they went bad, I made banana bread for our night shelter clients.
One evening, as a meal donor, Carolee and her friends prepared a delicious meal with many trays of food. They also very thoughtfully brought flowers to brighten up the evening meal time for our clients.
Belles in Boots are an amazing group of women, kind and gracious, who regularly donate breakfast items. The fresh fruits are a great way to start the day for our clients.
