Help Us Celebrate Resident Birthdays
The New Community Shelter is fortunate to have an AMAZING volunteer twosome: Ellen Mortell and Lori Hanus
These two ladies coordinate a monthly Birthday Party for all residents who have a birthday that month!
Living in a homeless shelter does not seem the time or the place that one would celebrate anything.
For some it’s been a very long time since their birthday has been acknowledged by anyone – even themselves.
These two ladies have recruited a number of other amazing ladies to help make the monthly party special.
The parties include cake, ice cream, a ton of other treats, and Bingo enjoyed by Residents, Volunteers, and those with Birthdays!
Each resident chooses items from our Birthday closet on their birthday.
To some people the items are nothing special but to our Birthday Residents… it is a gift……
For upcoming Birthday Parties the following items are requested by Ellen and Lori as gifts for our Birthday Residents:
Refillable Water Bottles
Travel Coffee Mugs
and Any Other Items You Believe Would Make a Great Present!
