MRFY continues to be humbled by the willingness of good people to help out. We received seriously amazing “survival” backpacks last week. These were put together by many faith communities for the Who We Are writing project. Participants each received back packs the day of the event at UW Union South. MRFY is helping to distribute the remainders. Real tough, high school-sized back packs stuffed with the essentials: protein bars, warm socks, gloves, note books, alarm clock etc. THANK YOU Bonnie Magnuson and Becky Schigiel, and all of the other contributing congregations.
The first one was given to a young man who spent the night riding the buses all night for lack of another option. He said “that’s so nice of people to do this” he was very touched and says “thank you”.
