(received this from the Serra Project, a group we helped this last Sunday...whew! I haven't gardened like that in a Long time! :) :) the women at the Serra Project were so welcoming and kind. it was quieting to think of the reality that they live with each day...)
Last weekend, dedicated volunteers from the countywide Big Sunday effort put in their time, energy and home-improvement skills at The Serra Project’s four group homes for destitute persons living with HIV/AIDS. The volunteers scrubbed, painted, weeded, planted and beautified the exterior of each house—all tasks a non-profit such as ours just doesn’t have the resources to do on a regular basis.
Best of all, the event brings with it the possibility that one or several of our residents can pitch in right alongside the volunteers, getting to know them through a shared act of giving. For clients, it is a wonderful respite from the medical struggles and other issues they face on a daily basis.
From the beginning, The Serra Project has benefited from the enthusiastic commitment of the Big Sunday organizers, and we are sincerely appreciative of their efforts on our behalf.
