Thank you for donating to Homeless nonprofit

Editor, the Advocate:

I wanted to thank our wonderful community on behalf of the Victoria Area Homeless Coalition. The outpouring of community support for the Holiday Supply Drive has been humbling! Victorians donated more than 500 pairs of socks and $1,000 in addition to the items we requested.

Thanks to Pam Raley, CPA.; Pine Street Community Center and Split Enz Salon for graciously being drop-off locations. Collected items will be distributed during the Point In Time Count on Jan. 24 as we locate the homeless and identify those at risk of becoming homeless.

VAHC's motto is "People helping People." We are individuals and organizations, secular and religious, looking to make a difference together. Please contact us about volunteering or more information at endpovertyvahc@gmail.com.

Kim Pickens, President of VAHC, Victoria
