Halloween 2014, and to being a Good Friend & Neighbor!

The day began with a visit from a few members of The Community who brought with them 156 top-notch sack lunches and cases of bottled water to distribute to our neighbors, both here at Heartside and throughout the Heartside neighborhood. The lunches were a huge hit as were the extra bananas!
After our wonderful GED Coordinator and official tour guide, Jamie, took the group through our building and explained the programs Heartside offers,

Jamie and Keyth, one of our stellar volunteers known as the Deacon of Heartside, took us on a neighborhood tour that included some of the other non-profit institutions in the area, Degage Ministries and Guiding Light Mission. We stopped for a few photos at Guiding Light in front of the mural that Jamie painted for the Mission.
We skipped visiting Mel Trotter and instead headed back to the Art Studio so members of the group could create some art with Heartside artists. Billy, Pastor at The Community, took that time to interview some people, interviews that will end up sometime soon in a video we will share.

Then they had to head home but left having met new people, having had some good conversations, and knowing they had filled many grateful bellies. And then, this happened :-(
Welcome to winter! But the Halloween and Community Room fun continued.
Staff goofing with staff.
Cheers to good friends and neighbors, and to being both!
