Thank you to all who worked to turn Mount Olivet into a place of welcome and refuge for homeless families through Families Moving Forward. There were over 70 individuals, families, and small groups who pitched in by setting up rooms, preparing meals, playing with the children, doing dishes, cleaning up messes, staying overnight, donating money, doing laundry, and all the other large and small acts of hospitality and neighbor love and undertaking like this requires. Together we gave three families the stability they need as they work to find permanent housing.
A very special thank you to Mel Ulberg, Marcia Ziebell, Bob Carlson, and Linda Busklein, who coordinated this whole effort, recruiting volunteers and being present on site every night last week. Give them a word of thanks next time you see them.
