I became involved as SOLLC's Volunteer Coordinator for Simpson Housing Services two years ago. I had previously served the evening meal there many times before and found it such an impactful and important opportunity I decided to step into the Coordinator role when the need arose.
One of the things that inspires me to support this ministry is that it is a hands on service opportunity rather than just writing a check or dropping off an item. Seeing the faces of the people we are serving leaves a lasting impression. I also enjoy the conversations in our family car on the way home from serving nights. I feel it's a great learning experience for our kids to be involved in this ministry too. Being able to provide a group of people experiencing homelessness a warm meal is a blessing to us and to them!
