We are continuing to see God’s Favor fall upon us here at the Favor House. We have been blessed to intake eight new residents so far in our first quarter! With your help, these residents have all been able to receive the supplies they needed to get back on their feet and find employment of their own!
We are also tremendously blessed to be able to partner with The GEO Group from Florida. The GEO Group is a global provider of prison services that works diligently to serve men beyond their sentence by helping them get the treatment they need. We have been chosen to be the preferred vendor for their re-entry program. We look forward to working with them and expanding our reach further than ever.
Our volunteers from last month’s newsletter are at it again! They are aiming to host a Spring picnic for our residents and their families. We love holding events like this and meeting everyone who loves and supports our residents. We are asking for donations to help provide the food, utensils, charcoal and all the other items needed to host a huge cookout! We need your help! You can donate on our website by clicking “How to Help” followed by “Donate Now” to be taken directly to our PayPal account! We would also love gift cards to purchase these items to stores such as Kroger, Walmart or Ingles. Any donation no matter how big or small makes a difference!
With our influx of new admissions and our partnership with The Geo Group, we are trying to get a head start on resident supplies. We supply each new resident with bedding, linens, a pillow and basic hygiene products upon arrival to our program. We are asking for donations of new or slightly used blankets and sheets to fit twin size beds and donating is easier than ever! You can simply go to https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2NC83JR8BC9IK/ref=cm_wl_list_o_0 to view a list of items and have it send directly to us all from the comfort of your home!
