JUNE SPOTLIGHTS:

House of Refuge

June 8 – National Upsy Daisy Day

No matter the struggles, bumps in the road, or the challenges that we face every day, we have to remember to face the day with positivity and empowerment. Starting each day with an enthusiastic mindset can provide desirable results for an individual and others around him/her. Join the House of Refuge with their mission to provide transitional housing and supportive services to homeless families in crisis. In 2016-2017, they provided 26 Gilbert residents with assistance in job searching, case management, workshops, a place to sleep, and food boxes. In observance of National Upsy Daisy Day remember to see the bright side and spread that positivity around your community. This organization is doing good works for Gilbert residents, supported by funding from the Neighbor 2 Neighbor program.  Get involved today www.Gilbertaz.gov/n2n! For volunteer and donation information, visit their website at www.houseofrefuge.org to help families see that there are brighter days ahead to smile about.

Your donation is tax deductible.

Sign up today to begin your monthly donation of $1, $3, $5 or $10 or make a Gilbert Goodies purchase from the on-line Gilbert Town Store.
