We all know that God's timing is perfect and that was seen this week with the grant approval from E.R. Carpenter of $40,000 to buy a new van for the shelter. As circumstances happened, our Social Worker was out with 3 residents, 2 newborns and 2 toddlers when the our current vehicle broke down at the library. Everyone made it back to the shelter through numerous trips in a staff vehicle, but it was certainly apparent that the shelter needs another vehicle that can accommodate all the residents and numerous car seats. This is the second grant from E.R. Carpenter to purchase a vehicle for the shelter, and is a wonderful example of their support of the shelter in our efforts to help homeless pregnant women and their children. So a big thank you to Mr. Tommy Stinson and the E.R. Carpenter grant committee for meeting the need of our shelter. What a wonderful way to start this Christmas season!
