OASIS COMPASSION AGENCY INC
January 24, 2010

I am a member of the advisory board and a floating volunteer for the Oasis Compasssion Agency. I volunteer my time, talent and resources to Oasis because it is a lifeline for hurting people in the community. Oasis helps people at thier lowest point see that there is still hope and opportunity to turn their many times desperate situation around. It provides practical solutions to daunting problems. It provides food for the hungry, clothes for those in need, particularly work clothing for job interviews, empowerment opportunities such as job counseling, resume building, computer training and many skills designed to put people back on their feet. Oasis doesn't just "give a man a fish" - it teaches men and women how to fish. In addition to volunteering my time on the advisory board, I have picked up and delivered furniture and food, helped with resumes, job counseling, food pantry work and in many other capacities. I do this because Of the great work of Oasis, its management with integrity, its heart for the community and the major impact it has on its community. One measure of the effectiveness of an organization is whether that organization would be missed in its absence. In the case of Oasis, there is no other private agency that does all that it does with such excellence and impacting so many families per year. Its absence would mean a huge void in the community. Oasis Compassion Agency changes real lives - serving over 4000 families since its inception.
