Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free…
The staff at the Friendship House Clothing Bank gives thanks for the freedoms and liberties that we are blessed with in the United States of America. We are grateful to do our small part in serving our tired, our poor, and our huddled masses.
What would you do if you were given $60,000? I can tell you what we will do with the $60,000 you raised for us through the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community: We will serve more people who are struggling with homelessness. We will house more people who are in need of sound programming looking for a self sufficient way of living. We will give away more clothes. We will give more women jobs. We will be able to say yes to one more person who is asking for help. We will continue to be a sanctuary for those who need it most and a stepping stone to empowerment for all those who ask.
Because of you.
Friends, you are heroes!
And we felt incredibly blessed to walk 3 miles with you on behalf of all those we serve who were unable to do so.
Thank you. Thank you to the team captains who got 420 people to sign on as walkers in support of Friendship House! Thank you to every person who joined us today to walk or who joined in prayer! Thank you for breaking every record we set! THANK YOU for raising $60,000 for our life saving ministries!!
Let’s do it again next year!
Your greatest fans – The Friendship House family
We would like to recognize one of the graduates of the Friendship House Housing Program, Gina Martinez. She truly is an inspiration to all of us and her positivity is contagious. We are so thankful and blessed that she remains close to her Friendship House family by volunteering her time and energy with us. She started out as a part time cashier at ShopRite, and she is now an Assistant to Director of Security and Technology. Congratulations for being recognized at ShopRite for the amazing things you do!
