When people work together great things can happen!
For over a month we have been planning and organizing a charity bbq event to help raise funds and donated items benefiting Herizon House, a not for profit organization who provide free confidential services 24 hours a day and provide a place of safety, support and empowerment for abused women and their children. Herizon House is committed to ending the cycle of abuse and violence in the community.
Yesterday was the day of our 2015 Helping Hands Charity BBQ for Hope Event and although considering the possibility making the difficult decision of cancelling and rescheduling, we decided to move forward with hosting it as planned.
Despite the rain, wind and cooler than normal weather and a very well- built tarp for shelter, we are very grateful to those who volunteered, attend and donated items to make this event a huge success!
We are dedicating this blog to these individuals who have worked incredibly hard at helping us make a difference in our community. This event is just an example of how when people work together, great things can happen!
We are a dedicated team of individuals focused on continuing to find ways to make our communities better and helping those who in difficult times, need help the most.
Our nieces Olivia and Alessia who have been working so hard at helping us create and decorate a donation bin for the Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope Program. These 2 girls did an INCREDIBLE job and we all had so much fun working together.
Every gift is a gift of hope. Your donation makes a difference in the lives of women and children who are survivors of violence and abuse that are provided a place of safety, support and hope at Herizon House women’s shelter.
You can help the lives of abused women and children in your community.
