Today the Friends, Family & Residents of Crowell made a HUGE difference in the lives of a bunch of strangers and they don't even know it yet!
Throughout the year, clothing items are donated to Crowell Home. Some of these items find homes with those in need right away. Others are held over for the "Clothing Boutique." This is a fun 'Shop til you drop" event where residents are able to 'shop' through donated items and pick out things they would like for themselves. Staff assist those in need of assistance. In the end, anyone with a need, or a desire for clothing- get clothing!
Most years, we have a surplus. This year's surplus FILLED my jeep (leaving just my seat empty)! The recipient of this year's clothing will be the resident's and other beneficiaries of the Open Door Mission. The Open Door Mission has been working to help end poverty and homelessness for 60 years and we are so honored to be able to lend a hand to their ministry.
Through all your kind donations of clothing, not only were seniors here at CMH's needs met, but the needs of those at the Open Door Mission can be met as well. Who knows? Maybe that outfit you gave will be the outfit a proud young man wears for the job interview that gets him & his young family back on their feet? Or the coat you didn't wear any more will be the one keeping someone warm this winter? You just never know where your blessings are going to land when you send them out there. Thank you to our Crowell Family & Friends for your generosity, we couldn't do it without you! #OpenDoorMission #CrowellMemorialHome http://www.opendoormission.org/
