Serve First! 1st Annual Holiday Share

by Feb 19, 2021Insights

Here is a summary of the Serve First! 1st Annual Holiday Share. This year it was for all active clients in lieu of doing a gift. It hit me through the year how this crisis was creating a bigger gap between those of us that have food, clothing, shelter, and hugs and those that do not. I added the ‘hugs’ in there as a metaphor for isolation. I hope to expand this to all graduated clients next year. Here are the list of organizations we impacted:
