We usually have a spreadsheet we have with lists of places to give to and our volunteers pick a place and just send something to a need off of the list. However randomly we receive an emergent request. One request recently was for a casket.
We were able to provide a family a casket we also sent burial clothes and a memory box. It was wonderful to see how our volunteers all came together to get this request done. And also the funeral home that helped donate a casket to this family who was in great need.
Then another came and with in the next day the parents were being sent a quilt, memory box, burial clothes, and more.. It was wonderful to see how quickly our volunteers were able to meet the needs of another emergent need.
I have to brag and say our volunteers are priceless!!!
