Easter Bucket Drive
Once again you have made the Easter bucket drive a success. THANK YOU!
Monday, March 12, I had the opportunity to visit Halle Center to help serve dinner. We took a bus full of your donations of citrus and linens.
Halle’s Center is housed in an old motel purchased by UMOM for homeless women. The goal of the experienced and dedicated staff is to provide temporary shelter for these women and assist them in returning to a productive life. In addition to helping them find affordable housing, a job counselor is available to assist them with their resumes and to locate available job opportunities. We were told although their stay could be up to 120 days, the average stay is 60 days. Monday night we brought a large Costco salad to add to their dinner, it was a big hit.
The goal of your Mission and Outreach Committee is to help change the lives of the less fortunate within the beam of our candle. Hopefully, our gifts and service to these homeless women make their lives a little better.
