On December 5th several members met at Lisa's home to pack up boxes of kitchen supplies to donate to Journey To Housing.  Journey To Housing is one of our current District Grant Projects.  Our Club contributed half and District 6400 contributed half for a total of $5,000 which we spent on kitchen supplies and family night supplies for 10 families that are being sponsored by Journey To Housing, an affiliate of St. Vincent de Paul. 
The first family who are a recipient of our donations were due to move into their new apartment the next day on December 6th.  Lisa had led the Club in purchasing our kitchen supplies which included silverware, dishes, pots and pans, kitchen linens, coffee pots, cutlery, and crock pots, among the various items a new kitchen needs.  We were able to put together items for 10 kitchens to be given out to the recipients.  The families who are a part of this project are families of the working homeless.  Journey To Housing works with these homeless families to help them manage their finances better, obtain training so that they can get a better job, and find housing for their families.  We are humbled to have this opportunity to help these families, and are grateful to those people who have supported our events, and to our District 6400 for granting us these funds.
