It's easy to forget, even on our worst days, there are many people who have it much, much worse then we do.
All of us at John C. Flood realize the plight and severity of the homeless problem, especially in and around the Metro DC area. It's for this reason we have teamed up with Carpenter's Shelter based in Alexandria, Virginia to provide regular necessities such as food items, volunteer time and plumbing, heating, air conditioning and electrical services to their shelter for the homeless.
We had a chance to visit the shelter recently and we were moved by the quality of care provided to their clients before, during and even after their stay at the shelter. It's shelters like the Carpenter's Shelter that are sorely needed within the Washington DC Metro Area and throughout the country.
For the Thanksgiving holiday John C. Flood will be donating 30 turkey's and a variety of items needed to provide their holiday meal. On an on-going basis we will provide in-kind donations as well as provide plumbing, heating, air conditioning and electrical service work to the shelter.
The Carpenter's Shelter is an award-winning homeless program based in Northern Virginia, dedicated to offering housing and hope through respect, responsibility and results. Over the past 24 years, Carpenter's Shelter has grown to a full center of learning, and helps children, families and adults stabilize their lives and overcome homelessness.
We are happy to be teaming up with Carpenter's Shelter and they are always looking for in-kind donations and volunteers. Visit Carpenter's Shelter
