Our Friends at Lackner McLennan Insurance visited us today to drop off some comfort and joy for our residents. Joan and Cynthia delivered new pillows and sheet sets as gifts for women who are in shelter and leaving shelter. This type of gift really does bring comfort while in shelter, and is taken with them when they leave.
A new pillow to rest her head at night can make a world of difference to a woman who has just arrived from a stressful and violent situation. That pillow will help her rest as she gains the strength and knowledge to move forward free of abuse.
The bed sheets will be a fresh start that she will use in shelter and take with her in her new life. These gifts are ones that women might have to shop for at thrift shops and second hand stores.
We are humbled that Lackner McLennan and it’s employees continue to think of the women and children we serve through Women’s Crisis Services. Thank you for your generosity of gifts and of spirit, and thank you for sharing the comfort and joy of the season with us.
