DS-WA MGOCSM - Phoenix Summer Service Event 2015

 

 The MGOCSM of Phoenix, Arizona served at a local foundation called Save the Family. This facility offers a variety of programs designed to empower families to overcome homelessness and achieve life-long independence. Families from different backgrounds gather and attend classes, apply for jobs, prepare for interviews and gain access to safe and permanent housing. As a youth, we helped out by preparing meals (pizza kits and ham sandwiches), making posters, cleaning the surroundings, and reorganizing their family library. At the end of the day, we were able to walk away knowing that we helped make a difference in their lives. Overall, it was a blessed experience for the youth as we were able to see the struggles faced by the homeless community on a daily basis and be able to help them out in the little ways we could. It gave us an opportunity to give praise and thanks to God for all that He has done for us and will continue to do so in our lives.
