  • Sunday 12/16 – Thank you Jim for volunteering to drive, along with Peter, Dave, and Matt for helping with the heavy lifting for three pick ups! Also, a HUGE thank you to Sue Keating for all of her help organizing the linens at the warehouse, amazing work, our warehouse looks like a brand new space and our shelves are full to the brim with linens ready to go out to our clients in need!
We are so grateful for our volunteers year round, but this time of year makes it extra special when making over these apartments. Especially when thinking that some of our clients would be sleeping out in the cold without the help of our staff and community providers getting them into housing!
