Over the past few months, we've had several nights where the temperatures have plummeted down into single digits. Knowing that people in our city without homes would be sleeping outside, we mobilized people to go out and check on them. our mission was simple. We simply wanted them to know we care; and offered them a ride to a local shelter, blankets, coats, gloves, socks, warm coffee and snacks.
We can't always predict the wearher, but we can be prepared to respond rapidly to needs in our community as they arise. The nature of our Rapid Response initiatives doesn't always give us a lot of time to mobilize. However, we have always been blown away by the outpouring of kindness and compassion of our volunteers.
