Well, Eastside family, we’ve made it! Our break for the holidays is finally here. The Eastside Ministries team is going to take this time to enjoy our families, get caught up on some rest after a very fast-paced November and December, and return ready to hit the ground running for our greatest year yet in January, 2018.
We served over 600 families in November, and though December is a short month, I’m sure we’ve kept pace! We could not do this any month of the year without your dedicated support. This year, hundreds of volunteers have given us thousands of hours of their time. Hundreds of people have cleaned out closets, downsized wardrobes, and given a second life to items left behind by loved ones. Many of our supporters have given financial contributions that make the nuts and bolts of operating this agency possible from the ground up. For all of this, words could never do–but I do want to express my deeply heartfelt thanks for this community. Because of your dedicated to ensuring our neighbors never have to go without food and clothing as long as they can reach our doorstep, we’ve been able to serve over 20,000 Eastsiders in need of our help this year. THANK YOU!

It is our sincere goal to take the tremendous legacy that Eastside Ministries has been building since 1985 to new heights in 2018. We want to improve the way we serve our clients, our volunteers, and our donors. We’ve been attending seminars and workshops to learn how to make the most of our efforts, for everyone’s benefit. We look forward to what the new year will bring, and I sure hope y’all are with us for the journey!
…But for now, we’re signing off for a much-needed long winter’s nap. Thank you, from the bottom of my forever grateful heart. Merry Christmas, and a most joyous New Year to you and yours.
