This year has been really incredible and it is because of the love and support of so many volunteers, donors, businesses and organizations that support us.
I would like to acknowledge Blissful Spirits Hot Yoga for being our biggest supporter this year; collectively they have raised over $12,000.00 for us and continue to encourage volunteerism and donations everyday.
United Court of the Sandia's is another organization that has been unceasingly supportive this year. They have held Drag shows, barbecue's, car washes and more to raise money for us and have been represented by volunteers at nearly every Give and Sort that we have had this year.
There have also been countless volunteers who have amazingly shown up every Wednesday to sort the mountains of donations and every Saturday rain or shine, really early in the morning to process hygiene items, load the trailer and work in the cold weather to get these donations to the community we serve. And they do it with a smile and a hug for anyone who wants one.
I am also deeply grateful to everyone for their patience with me in the last 3 months. My mothers illness and resulting death has kept me from being a very effective organizer. So I want to thank everyone who supported me and my family during this difficult time. Thank you all so much.
Our next board meeting is this Sunday and that is when we will be deciding future events, so keep following our little grassroots organization. If you are reading this you are a part of an incredible movement of compassion in action! Thank you!
