For a Cabeau Cares charity event, I invited my company Cabeau to come help serve our local charity and homeless community in the valley. Little did we expect were the passionate speeches and introductions from Jonathan, his staff, longtime volunteers and homeless folks that really made the day so much more worthwhile to help out in. We helped with inventory of clothing items, washed cans, chopped up dessert, salads and fruit to serve to the community. We're glad we gave our time to Hope of the Valley.

This 10 year old mission station is really about hope: giving it to the clients who come for a warm meal, a shower, some clothing, or just to talk to someone and try to get back on their feet. We went to fill the stomachs of the people who had gathered there for lunch, and left with our own hearts full.
