Wow!!! The Congregation Beth Yeshurun brought it today! We had 30 volunteers who served up salmon, boudin stuffed, bacon wrapped pork, steak skewers, and fried chicken as entrees!
In addition to that, they offered up an array of delicious sides and non-perishables, and our volunteers distributed new socks, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothbrushes, toothpaste, body lotion, wool blankets, coats and other essentials to just south of 150 of Houston’s homeless population compliments of Cub Scout Pack 11.
We LOVE that the kids ran the show today. We have so many youth volunteers that are leaders in their communities and they LOVE volunteering for Direct HOPE because they can really experience the difference they are making in the lives of others.
Well done to all!!! Thank you to the adults who donated non-perishable and trusted us enough to engage their most precious possessions, and we want to thank all of the young adults that donated blankets, coats and toiletries to our indigent population.
