SACK LUNCH PROGRAM
It’s Sunday morning, and it’s been quite the whirlwind weekend for the project. We started off the weekend as the beneficiaries of the proceeds to be collected from the Vallejo Pride Masquerade Ball. Proceeds we will receive next week, and that will have an immediate impact in the lives of the people we serve. With that positive energy, we turned right around and hit the streets of Vallejo with 100 sack lunches, toiletries, and much more. We also continued to sign up people interested in joining to our MLK FAMILY & FRIENDS PROGRAM!! To say the least, we are excited to get the program, with all of its advantages and incentives, going at full capacity. From here on out, we will have open enrollment once a month, on every third Saturday. With that being said, we signed up 10 more people, one family, and distributed cards to those who have already signed up.
The he most important thing is that we are able to consistently maintain our level of service and the standards we have imposed on ourselves. Dignity is the name of this game, and we want to reassure our friends that it’s theirs to demand, and even more so, theirs to maintain! This program will help us to establish more personal and trusting bonds with those we serve, and that is how our words of hope and our actions will resonate better, because they will be better received. It will be a constant work in progress, because better can always be improved upon.
Last but certainly not least, we are trying to help our friends take care of their furry friends, really more like furry family members, by providing pet products, including food, water, meds, and accessories like collars, leashes, etc... We are very in touch with our love for animals here at the project, and short of being vegans, though some of the team are, we definitely believe in responsible and loving pet care. These pets provide companionship, loyalty, and mostly love. They give it, and they encourage our friends to provide it. Empowering the empathy they have within themselves for life, both man and animal.
All in all, yesterday was like every other day of service, it was a gift and a blessing, for our friends and ourselves. We look forward to getting out next weekend and getting this program moving. So we will see you in the streets of Vallejo next Saturday morning!!! ✌🏾🙏🏾
