Thank you to our guests that attended H.E.L.P.’s first New Year’s Eve Gala for those in A Night’s Welcome, H.E.L.P. House Family Shelter, and Transitional Housing. The party was sponsored in part by Sister Marga Bagwell and Viteri Construction (special thanks to H.E.L.P. volunteer, Amanda Wilson Viteri and family) Also a big thanks to T-Mobile for providing cell phones for guests to connect with loved ones. The evening started with party hats, beads and airhorns, great food to nibble on, music and dancing; and then a time of reflection and testimony inwhich our guests shared stories of success while in case management programs with H.E.L.P. We counted down to midnight and then shared a sparkling cider toast. Pastor Charles Cheek, Pastor Steve Edwards, and Pastor Jim Moynihan also shared special messages with our guests. Thank you to staff members Jose Bynum and Linda Mason-Brookes for assisting and attending. A special thanks to Pastor Charles Cheek for helping with food preperation, planning, and set up. Together, we as a community “uplift those in crisis and end homelessness”.
