We love to hear from the homeless services organizations that we aid throughout the year. We recently received the following lovely posting on our Facebook wall by Stepping Stones Shelter in Rockville, Maryland:
Two huge boxes of brand new socks just arrived! A huge thank you to Gifts for the Homeless, Inc. for sending them over- it is so appreciated!
Check out their Facebook Page to learn more about the amazing work they are doing in the Washington DC area. Every single dollar that Gifts for the Homeless receives from public donations is used to purchase and distribute new clothes for various shelters in the area.
Stepping Stones provides a continuum of services (emergency shelter, permanent supportive housing, and post-shelter support) to homeless families with children in order to move them from crisis to a stable home environment. By offering food, shelter and supportive services in an atmosphere of dignity and respect, Stepping Stones provides hope for the future, strengthens families, and promotes self-sufficiency.
