It’s Sunday evening in Vallejo, and a somber one at that. Yesterday we went out faced with some additional challenges from an operational standpoint. We were doing a run that required two vehicles and four individuals, in order to execute it effectively and efficiently. We with a limited team, we worked out the semantics, and found a way to make it work. As we headed out, we met a young man in distress, a family in need, and learned of a friends death all within the first 30 minutes! However, thru a very tough start, we stayed the course and found many more of our friends to help. Having a limited crew and the needed available space, we elected to just let everyone have everything, and not just limit to the MLK FAMILY & FRIENDS PROGRAM members. However, we did so with the promise of doing something special for our members next weekend, and if we have a nice surprise for them. Loaded up with our usual 100 sack lunches, toiletries, pet products, Bombas Socks, and much more, we were really excited to start passing out disposal underwear for emergency situations! The idea is to provide our friends with the tools to maintain their esteem by improving upon their availability to hygiene products. It was a particularly long day, but a very productive one nonetheless. We are excited to head out next weekend, to see the faces that need love and hope, and hopefully not to see so many faces of despair. So we will be our next Saturday doing what we do, and we will certainly announce our surprise fir our friends this week! Do have a wonderful evening and see you in the streets of Vallejo next Saturday!
On a quick personal note, we want to say to our dear departed friend Ms. Beverly Malcolm, we loved you then and we love you now! RIP my friend! 🌹
