WJBF Giving Your Best Service Day
We had a wonderful day of service last Thursday March 16th at Gap Ministries!
We had volunteers come out from the WJBF Giving Your Best group to help us provide hope one shower at a time! This group gives back to many local organizations and individuals and is supported by Security Federal Bank, Solvay, WJBF, and Piedmont Augusta. We would like to thank this group and all of these businesses for their support. It is difficult to secure volunteers for weekday events and these individuals helped our event run smoothly and effectively provide compassion along with a shower to all of our guests.
We were able to provide warm showers, clean clothes, and toiletries to 13 individuals on an uncharacteristically cold morning in Augusta. We were also able to connect some of these individuals to other organizations such as First Step Staffing to assist them in their transition out of homelessness.
Thank you to everyone who donated to the drive hosted by the WJBF Giving Your Best Group! These donations will help us to continue to provide appropriate clothing and toiletries to our guests during the next several showers. Keep an eye on our social media and website to see our current needs and to know when we need more of these items.
