This week in service August 19, 2020

 This week at Sunflower Harbor homeless outreach: 55 comfort packs were given out, bringing our current total for the month of August to 131! Most of these are prepped by our Abiline ladies. They've been doing an amazing job! 

One of the vets we have been working with got his ID yesterday and immediately went and got a job! 

3 new direct placements

In Dallas, We have a new volunteer who has experience in similar things and is going to school to learn nonprofit finances, management,  volunteer management, grant writing, and more! We look forward to working with her! 

None of what we do could be done without all our amazing volunteers! We grow as our network of amazing volunteers and patrons grows and we are so thankful for each and every one of you!

Most of our in house projects have been put on hold due to covid and funding issues, but our outreach is helping so many! I am using this downtime to rework the in-house program to better fit everyone's needs. 

Current fundraisers are earmarked for lunches and our first tiny home. 

Don't forget is running a fundraiser for us! Advocate shirts, bags, and stickers now available!
