Our Administrative Assistant, Gaby, is normally busy working at the office. But recently, she had the opportunity to visit our drop-in on BBQ Day!
It was a fun day with plenty of hamburgers, hot dogs, sides, dessert and beverages to go around. Everyone was so appreciative of the community donations that came in so that we could organize this special event for our street community.
Gaby was happy to be there, helping serve, visiting with people, and seeing some of our street friends who visit the office.
I recently asked her about her experience at the drop-in that day, and this is what she said:
“What I sensed was a real community: People know each other, clients, volunteers and staff alike, and genuinely enjoy each other’s company. For some of the ladies there, they told me it’s their only outing. It gives them an opportunity to see their friends and be a part of a caring community.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
