Helping Others, Kindness

A Thanksgiving Meal for Our Homeless Clients

John and I volunteer on Monday’s at a Homeless Center in Auburn; I interview the clients and John is the shower guy.  After being interviewed, they pick out clean clothes then go to the shower.  (There are 4 shower stalls and John cleans them after every client)  https://www.aubsda.org/

Yesterday, the center held a Thanksgiving Dinner for our clients.  It was awesome and I have never seen so many smiles at one time on their faces.

So, two weeks before the dinner, and in order to know how much food we needed, the interviewers, that’s me, asked clients if they would attend the dinner.

It nearly broke my heart when many of them nodded, then dropped their head and said, “Yes, thank you, thank you.  I don’t have anywhere to go to have a Thanksgiving meal”.

I’m posting this puzzle picture because it portrays how the homeless feel.  Forsaken, forgotten, lost, abandoned, isolated.  John and I feel that the homeless are part of our community, like a piece in a puzzle, and if we can make one day a little bit better for them, then we have helped our fellowman.

We Can Never Lose HOPE….
