Thank you, SunCrest!
About 10 years ago, we started the SunCrest Lifestyle Warm WinterClothes Drive after a client mentioned some of her neighbors were struggling to make ends meet and couldn’t afford warm clothes. We knew we wanted to help and so we put together the idea of a clothes drive, crossed our fingers, and sent it out to everyone here in SunCrest.
We had no idea what to expect but from that very first year, you stepped up to help. Over the years, you’ve continued to amaze us. Your donations have helped needy service industry families in Heber, homeless individuals at The Road Home’s Mens and Family Resource Center, and most recently, The Family Support Center’s LifeStart Village and Crisis Nursery.
In early December we dropped off this year’s donations —a mind-boggling 500 or so items—and we were once again awed at your generosity and support. We wanted to relay the gratitude of the Family Support Center to you, as well. They explained that donations like yours are what keeps them running. Your donations will be used for programs like their crisis nursery, which offers free drop-in daycare for parents, many coming from situations of domestic violence, and offers them a chance to run to an appointment, or just have a moment to themselves. Your warm winter items may also be used at The LifeStart Village, where families are getting back on their feet through transitional housing and self-sufficiency programs. No matter what, your donations will help keep someone warmer and safer.
SunCrest, thank you. Every pair of gloves, every hat, every coat—each donation over the years has made a difference. Whether you donated a single item, or saved up a full bag all year, we are monumentally grateful for your selfless donations and are in awe of your kindness again this year. We live in a special place and you are what makes this community so incredible. Thank you!
