I am new to Vernon and I was not familiar with any local shelters. When I found a local shelter, Turning Points Collaborative Society, I reached out to them and they were so happy to hear that I was interested in donating a number of sleeping bags!
Vernon has had an early start to winter this year so they were very thankful. I look forward to continuing to connect with them and hopefully get more involved in outreach initiatives with more of my ecclesial members!
Thank you for this great opportunity to spread more of Gods love. This was also a great experience for me to personally feel like I’m getting involved in my new community during a time when it can feel difficult to help out due to COVID restrictions.
