A safe place to lay our heads. A full belly. These things shouldn’t be too much to ask. Nonprofits like the Bowery Mission in New York City are vital in ensuring that everyone has access to these simple life necessities. And volunteers are vital to nonprofits like the Bowery Mission.
The fight against cancer is often more than medical. One of the biggest casualties of cancer is hope. If we can instill that hope in people afflicted with the terrible disease, we can give them just a tiny nudge that might help on the road to recovery.
In addition to food and shelter, children need a little magic in their lives. They need something to believe in. They need something to look forward to on the holidays.
Our New York office held a sandwich-making event for the Bowery Mission. The Bowery Mission has served homeless and hungry New Yorkers since 1879, and their goal is to be the most effective provider of compassionate care
and life transformation for hurting people in New York City.
Working with Women in Need, the New York office accepted 10 Santa letters from children of all ages and fulfilled their holiday wishes.
On June 7, the Minneapolis office made 260 cards for Cranes of Hope, an organization that creates pocketsize works of art using origami cranes on playing cards to inspire people battling cancer.
