This past weekend CFVC was incredibly lucky to have such thoughtful community partners who helped us celebrate the women and children in our program in honor of Mother’s Day.
Tina Kirby, a fantastic volunteer and advocate for CFVC, put together a fantastic event for the women and children in our programs. Friday evening, there was music, massages, hair cuts and goodie bags for participants in CFVC’s shelter and transitional housing programs. The event was focused around giving the attendees some pamper time in honor of a day that celebrates mothers.
However, Tina did not forget that the children would not be so excited by a night of watching mom get treated well: Home Depot in Woodstock brought kits to help keep the kids entertained, and Changed 2 Ministries brought bounce houses, a cotton candy machine (who doesn’t need something sweet?) and an amazing acoustic duo to keep the kids engaged.
With food generously donated by Chick-fil-A and Twisted Kitchen,each of the families left happy and feeling very appreciated. We cannot say thank you enough to Tina for continuing to put together events like this for us.
Liberty Hill UMC also delivered flowers and Mother’s Day cards to our Hearthstone Landing residents. They are such a continual source of support for us and we are so grateful for all that they do for us and those we serve.
Reeves Florist, a commercial florist in Woodstock, donated flowers to the mothers in our emergency shelter for Mother’s Day.
A wonderful volunteer, Victoria, also gifted the women in our shelter cosmetics and personal items that she received from Origins in the Avenue at East Cobb.
Although the clients that we serve have faced tremendous hardship to find themselves at CFVC, we are truly thankful to have such a giving community to help make those we serve feel valued, appreciated and special. Without a doubt, this past weekend we saw this giving spirit with abundance.
