We are so thankful this Thanksgiving to announce the donation by of another home for the next year. “Mission House” will expand our emergency housing in eastern Pierce County, and received its first family yesterday (Wed). This family of 6 was living in their car for 2 weeks – and will now enjoy the holidays in a warm and safe home.
This is just one story. for each of our families, the warm beds, yummy smelling kitchens, and happy memories wouldn’t be possible without you and your support throughout the year. So we are thankful!
I am also personally very grateful to be able to be spending this Thanksgiving in such a wonderful community. I look forward to getting to know you and would appreciate the opportunity to get together for a cup of coffee to hear more how you got involved with us and any ideas you have about how we can be making a greater difference with families. If you’d be up for it, please send an email to me at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
I’d also invite you to follow the work with families this holiday season at http://facebook.com/helpinghandhouse or http://instagram.com/helpinghandhouse. We’d love to have you add your voice to the community conversation there (use the hashtag #helpinghandhouse).
On behalf of our newest family welcomed into Mission House, and all of us at Helping Hand House, we wish you a safe, joyful, and hopeful Thanksgiving and kickoff to your holiday season!
