IHS’ Give Thanks Project 2012

  • Nov 17, 2012 · 10:00 AM
  • IHS

I volunteered last year and it was quite a humbling experience, you get a wish list of what this family needs or would like and you pack into a box and then you call them and go deliver to them. It was so nice to see their faces light up when you show up to their house...both families I delivered to were so grateful and thankful that people cared about them...I hope you find the time to volunteer as this is the month to give thanks for what we have and give back to the people less fortunate!!!!
