We love our volunteers and donors not just for their thoughts and support but also because of their overwhelming compassion to go above and beyond on holidays like Valentine’s Day.

Parents and children at Carpenter’s Shelter received Valentine’s Day gift bags from generous, long-time volunteer Mary Kate Holland last week. The gift bags were made by the Daisy Girl Scout Troop at Grace Episcopal School where Holland teaches. The troop painted canvas bags and gave them to Holland and she handed them out on Wednesday, Feb. 12 to parents after our weekly parenting class.

Inside the gift bags were basic toiletries and the volunteers also included Valentine’s themed stickers for the children.

It’s outstanding how much an act of kindness can effect others, especially those who need it most. Everyone wants to feel loved on Valentine’s Day, including our clients.

Our volunteers and donors provide invaluable support. Show your love for our shelter by checking out our Amazon Wish List.

We’d like to give a big thank you to the Daisies, Holland and the other Wednesday volunteers for their participation in making our clients feel loved on Valentine’s Day this year!
