Making Teamwork Accessible
August was a month filled with projects. It seemed that with summer coming to an end people were ancy to get in one last volunteer opportunity
As the month rolled on we had a need come in from a gentleman who had needed our help before. But, unlike the last time, his health had taken a severe decline and he now needed help packing and sorting his belongings so he could move into an assisted living facility.
As you might imagine he was not able to take very much with him and so our first task was to schedule pick-ups with the Rescue Mission and Salvation Army to collect all of the furniture. We then sent out several small groups of volunteers to his home throughout the week to help him pick and choose what was going with him and what was not.
By the time the weekend came he was fully packed and ready to go, his brother arrived to move him to the facility and the furniture was picked up. After he had settled in, he called the office to let us know how smooth the transition had been from his house to his new living facility. A move he initially was not looking forward to had turned into an opportunity for him to witness the kindness of strangers.
