It was another beautiful day of service in Vallejo. The whole team was on deck, and we hit the streets running! So many wonderful stories of progress and hope for better days. It was a bit quiet to start, but towards midday, we began to see lots more faces, including children. Today everyone received a sack lunch, fruit, a water (drink packet included), a pairof black Bombas Socks, and a toiletry bag. Along with our friends, we also saw lots of loyal furry friends, who also enjoyed a little MLKHP style TLC!! 😉 With the assistance of our friend and teammate Moira and my wife Kerchinia, many of our friends saw their pets receiving new collars and leashes, to accompany the hearty dog food packages. ( Poop bags included!!)
To make great day even greater, we also heard three absolutely great stories including, our friend Jen in the above video showing the moment that we found out that she just got a vehicle upgrade! Or our young family of four, who were thankfully able to purchase an RV, so now their enjoying the price of mind it brings just knowing that their girls are a bit safer than before. Or even our friend Robert, who we hadn’t seen in months, which left us fearing the worst, only to see him out fishing in the Marina. Overjoyed to see him, we embraced, and then he let us know that he has been gainfully employed and doing much better. He even take a few minutes to lend us a hand. Positive growth is a wonderful thing to see.
Not to be forgotten, our other wonderful team members, Melissa and Becky, we were also busy distributing membership cards for the Family & Friends Program, as well as gathering information for future members. In addition, Melissa brought donuts (It’s her birthday 🎂), and we through in some Sunny D for a nice morning snack, before our friends enjoyed their sack lunches later.
All in all, it was a great day for so many reasons, but none more than the fact that our friends are really making possible changes in their lives, and consequently seeing growth within themselves and in their lives! We will be out next Saturday, and until then, always remember to tell the ones you love that you love them before you can’t! Always remember to be kind to others!! Peace, and May God continue to Bless Us All!! ✌🏾🙏🏾
