Community has never meant more to me than tonight watching families gather to pick up thanksgiving food, enjoying desert, hot coco and activities for the kiddos! All surrounded by multiple churches, Boy Scouts, school counselor, translator, volunteers, job readiness team, and my amazing CIS staff. There were over 50 meals waiting to go home with each of these families!
Connecting resources and people is critical to healthy communities. There is so much need and to see it all come together is how it should be. At the end of the night there wasn’t a dry eye, just a room full of people with hearts bigger than they know what to do with!
I believe there’s a solution to every problem, but it’s not always 1 person that has the answer, a lot of the time it’s multiple people each with a piece of the solution and when they finally come together they move mountains! That’s what strong communities do, and that’s what we do here in Puyallup!
