As I announced recently at Rise of Meeting, Homeward Bound of WNC sent the Meeting a thank-you note for gathering and contributing items for a Welcome Kit to help a person move out of streets and shelters and into permanent housing. In part, the note said: “You all are a part in helping us end homelessness in WNC. Thank you for helping make our clients’ new housing feel like home.”
I now call for volunteers to fill a new Welcome Kit, in coming weeks, so that we can add this act of generosity to our regular routine. Some people, including members and leaders of our First Day School, have already volunteered to help. Join us by picking an item or two from the assignment list (click link below) to contribute to the next Kit. I hope we can fill the Kit by early February, and make this a quarterly event. Please contact me for questions about the items or procedure, and email or speak to me about your selected contribution item. Thank you.
