Homeless Shelter Gift Bags DELIVERED!

Operation “Homeless Shelter Gift Bags” complete! Yesterday we delivered our Christmas gift bags to the Harvey County Homeless Shelter. We ended up putting together 23 bags (12 men, 8 women, 3 children)! What a great feeling, to be able to give to so many people.

We delivered these on a Saturday, so that Mike and the kids could participate. I want my kids to understand that there are all types of people in need of shelter. No stereotypes. No one type of person. I have shared my story with my children, but visiting the shelter was a great experience for them (and for Mike and myself).
