What is the charitable cause you are most passionate about and why?

Carpenters Shelter

Why do you give through the CFC?

I am passionate about giving to the organization because they are not only providing a clean and safe facility for those in need, but because it is also an environment that respects the clients and treats them with dignity. I understand that homelessness can effect anyone of us during any change or situation in our lives.

Located in a comfortable part of town this housing facility makes me proud knowing that my contributions are helping people who may have had one too many traumas or a set back in life, to get back on their feet. Some shelters only address the immediate needs of those seeking support. But I find that this organization is focused on the whole person, their health and well being. It has been a gratifying experience to witness several families graduate from the program and successfully reacclimate back into their communities with as sense of peace while equipped with resources to help along the way.

How do contributions through the CFC help your cause?

Contributions through CFC help my cause by providing the needed resources that the clients deserve. Its what allows the employees to supply them with quality meals, education and life preparation as well as skills to succeed on their own once they move forward.
