FAMILY PROMISE OF LAWRENCE INC
November 13, 2009
I will NEVER forget about a dozen volunteers, standing in the driveway, holding hands in a circle, heads bowed and giving a blessing to one of our families as she and her daughter moved into their home. i am the coordinator of Family Promise at our church. i became involved because
i think it is my responsibility as a human being to love and care for others...especially when they are at a critical time in their lives. Being able to make a real difference..either by fixing a yummy dinner, playing bingo with the kids, or giving a nice, long hug to a mom who is completely exhausted is incredible.
Family Promise is about love, hospitality and mostly success. My life is so much richer and i hope that i have made other lives richer, as well. truly is the best thing i have ever been involved with.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
knowing that i am making a difference. knowing that i am a part of a network of people who are all striving for the same goal...and that is to make life better for someone else. the smiles and hugs given and received are treasures.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every month

Volunteer & i am the coordinator at our church. i help get ready for our guests and making sure everything is in place when they arrive. i like to think as myself as one of the OFFICIAL huggers, too.
