For it is in giving that we receive

The joy of giving is one of the greatest joys of the season!

Our residents at Weinberg Housing and Resource Center, staying in hotel rooms to stay safe in COVID-19, are receiving your gifts this week!

It’s not that presents matter most. It’s that giving matters.

Those of you who gave a gift to a Weinberg Housing and Resource Center resident know that a person experiencing homelessness is a person first – someone’s son, daughter, father, mother, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, cousin, friend. They went to school with someone. They fell in love with someone. They have been loved.

Because of you, 357 of our neighbors experiencing homelessness will have a Christmas this year. Each individual receive what they specifically requested, as an acknowledgment of their dignity.

Thank you.
