Because of the hard work of so many volunteers, we were able to serve over 100 residents’ lunch and dinner—free of charge (that included folks from the Haven House, the homeless that live at Exit 0, and the impoverished from the community) and hand out about 45 gift bags full of a variety of clothes, snack bags and first aid kits. Our guests received first choice of the on-site donations plus the all day fellowship and entertainment at the Jeffersonville RiverStage. To date our can drive has netted us over 70 cases of various canned goods for the upcoming winter months. Clarksville Elementary School led the way with 50 of those cases! It's unbelievable what 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders can do when they put their minds to it! We are still receiving donations and have been contacted by folks from Indiana and Kentucky needing and offering help.
In closing, we understand the sacrifice you’ve made for us away from your family and friends and we only wish that we could express what it means to us and especially to those on the street! Thanks and God bless you for your dedication, selflessness and servitude!
