Recipient: The Delonis Center Initiative: Bags of Love Initiative 2020
I really appreciate this effort that The Garden has put together and look forward to participating more in the future. I had ordered the sleeping bags and had them sent directly to the homeless shelter. The Delonis Center is a homeless shelter in Ann Arbor, Michigan which my ecclesia (Ann Arbor) and I have been involved in over the last several years.
We typically volunteer in their kitchen by cooking and/or serving meals. We have been unable to do that for a while due to the pandemic, so I was very happy for this opportunity to give back to them. The shelter was very thankful and offered to give us a tour of their facility the next time we volunteer.
If Christ remains away, I hope to help my ecclesia set up a regular schedule for volunteering at the shelter and find more opportunities to help the homeless in our area. God has given us so much to be thankful for and it is important we share our gifts with others. Unfortunately I do not have any photos to share since these were sent directly to the shelter.
