McMillan Pazdan Smith has a long history with Crisis Ministries Shelter. At our most recent 5:01 we decided to collect donations for the organization. In exchange for adult libations, barbecue and good company, we encouraged our guests to make contributions that were used to assemble self-sufficiency kits that Crisis Ministries puts together for its guests. With a new school year beginning, the money collected was used to put together Classroom Kits. Men and women living at Crisis Ministries have the opportunity to participate in their education and employment programs, and with children staying at the Family Life Center, these kits provide students of all ages with the materials they need to excel in the classroom. Yesterday, Nick Galizia, as a representative of MPS, presented the school supplies purchased with the donations to Anne Jackson, Crisis Ministries Annual Fund Manager, in front of the Help Center.
Construction of our design for a new Men’s Shelter and Dining Hall is underway, with slabs for the East wing of the building (dormitories and clinic) being poured today.
Supplies purchased with the generous donations from our 5:01 guests.
Getting ready to pour the slab.
