The half way point of the year has come and it is a perfect time to reflect on what you have accomplished so far and what the final half of the year has in store. Have you kept that New Years' resolution? In a short few months, everybody will be in the holiday spirit, spreading love to their friends and families any way they can. During the brutal summer months, this holiday spirit can get swallowed by the humidity and sucked up by the mosquitoes.
Christmas in July is a fantastic way to create some holiday spirit in the middle of the year. Miami Rescue Mission along with Broward Outreach Centers coordinated a career fair where numerous agencies set up tables and helped prepare the needy with setting up appointments for possible future jobs. Agencies such as Urban League, HOPE, Inc, Legal Services of Miami, Opportunity Sacred Trust, just to name a few. To provide entertainment, hundreds of volunteers came out to lift spirits, gave out over 600 pairs of sneakers to needy children and over 2,500 meals were given out.
July in America is focused on celebrating independence but we were not able to become this amazing country without helping each other and spreading kindness.
If anyone has any ideas on how to spread love during the summer please reach out to anyone of our members and we would throughly enjoy helping out those in need.
