Day 225

I went to Must Ministries for the first time this morning. This organization provides food, clothing, financial aid, education and employment assistance; interview, assessment and referral services, to families and individuals in crisis. They also  have Integrated Housing Programs in Cobb, Cherokee, and Douglas Counties dedicated to helping 200+ residents break their own cycle of homelessness. Emergency shelter, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing and a host of wrap around services provide a healthy environment to foster whole life change.

A group of us were helping out in their warehouse. I started with sorting hygiene products then moved on to sorting clothes. They have a huge warehouse and they have lots of donations. With the clothes, they sort through them, keep what they need, then send the extras on to other shelters. There were a lot of items they weren't keeping today because they have so much already. It was encouraging to see a shelter have more than they need, thanks to some awesome givers!
