In my position, I get to meet, greet, help and interact with not only our clients, (I have already written a blog about the blessing in that before), but I also get to deal with our incredible volunteers and donors.
My dear friend of 25 years who lives in Dixon, CA called me last week and surprised me with the news that a local women’s prayer group, The Divine Mercy Group, had collected over 100 brand new and gently used hand bags, purses, clutches and shoulder bags for our clients! Each one was filled with sundry items like Q Tips, Kleenex, chapstick, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, cream rinse, body spray!
The group leader Elsa, spearheaded the donation drive and we are so fortunate that they chose our clients to be the recipients of such a great donation. The donations will help so many in need including our Parent Education program clients. Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services' (SFBFS) Parent Education program helps parents explore healthy eating options and offers supportive courses including toddler development. Participants earn valuable parenting supplies, such as diapers and clothing, through attendance. SFBFS' Parent Education program engages expectant families, mothers, fathers or guardians with their children 0 – 5 years of age. So thank you, Elsa and all the women in your prayer group who went to the effort to put together such a fantastic donation. We need more people like you!
