Meet Our Very First Guest
Saturday, February 12th was our very first shower service and we got to share the day with some very special guests!
We hosted a successful shower event at the Salvation Army Center for Hope and were able to provide four guests with showers. We got to meet and serve many other guests with hot coffee on a cold morning as well as with clothing, toiletries, and bath wipes. We hope that these initial meetings will instill hope and faith in this community in our mission and that many guests will return.
Mr Willie Dean, as pictured above, was our very first shower guest. It was truly a blessing to be able to serve this man and in turn to be blessed by getting to know a little bit about Mr. Willie and how he brings joy and laughter to those in similar circumstances to himself. The smile on his face was enough to make our entire day of hard work worth it! Mr. Willie hates the cold, but he ended up braving it on Saturday to get a hot shower.
We would like to thank our partners at the Salvation Army for hosting and for opening up their clothing store to also assist in serving our guests. We would also like to thank our partners at KAMO for the generous donation of their time and equipment. Their donation will truly improve the efficiency of our shower process and ultimately enable us to provide more showers and keep our guests safe!
