Survivors Giving Back
Since the onset of the pandemic forced social distancing for the safety of those at the Center, new approaches to programming needed to be considered. For the past several months, survivors have been assembling packages that are donated back into our community. Whether it’s book bags packed with school supplies, food packages that include all the ingredients to prepare a meal along with written insturctions, or toiletry kits filled with daily essentials, survivors have gained not only from working on the multistep tasks of assembling these kits, but they have also felt the satisfaction of helping others. The latest effort focuses on bags for boys and girls filled with Halloween treats.
