Editor, the Advocate:
I am writing to thank the generous donors and volunteers who support the Victoria Area Homeless Coalition in our endeavors to prevent and end homelessness. It is a joy to know that so many in our community have loving hearts that call them to serve others.
Please know that your donations of food, blankets, coats and money are appreciated and provided dignity, comfort and respite to a community that expressed gratitude for your generosity many times over.
Your financial contributions allowed the Homeless Coalition to purchase multiple nights of hotel shelter for 36 persons during the holidays. On your behalf and with your support, we helped another 109 vulnerable citizens by providing safe shelter and fellowship.
We shared the privilege of service with 25 community volunteers to whom we are very grateful. It is a pleasure to call this community home.
Lisa Griffin, Victoria Area Homeless Coalition president, Victoria
