I just received this note from Scott Schenkelberg, Executive Director of my favorite charity, Miriam’s Kitchen, where I volunteer as Sous Chef and Dining Room Campaign at least a couple-times-a-month, and any time they need a pinch hitter:
All of us at Miriam’s Kitchen have been impacted by your generosity this year.
From the homeless men and women who join us every day for a healthy meal and support services, to the volunteers who have the great opportunity to work with our guests because of your support–you have changed lives.
As we prepare to ring in the new year, we want to take a moment to let you know just how much your support really means to us.
Here are just 3 of the life-changing events you helped make possible in 2011:
- More than 3,200 homeless men and women received support services aimed at increasing their self-sufficiency and improving their quality of life,
- we hired our first Director of Advocacy and adopted a new vision of ending chronic homelessness in Washington, DC, and
- nearly fifty of our guests received keys to their very own home.
We’ve had a remarkable last few years here at Miriam’s Kitchen, and have you to thank for allowing us to continue to serve our guests in the best ways possible.
From all of us here at Miriam’s Kitchen, thank you for helping to change the lives of our guests this year.
Happy New Year.
Scott Schenkelberg, Executive Director
