HomePlate Youth Services is an organization whose mission is to support the positive development of young people experiencing homelessness or housing instability through community building, education, access to services and resources and youth empowerment.
Our Community Reputation Pro by RentPath duo volunteered to help set-up and run the hot beverage station at their annual holiday store. The holiday store is stocked with a large variety of gift items collected by donation and are set up so that the youth participants can find holiday gifts for themselves and family members. Dinner was also served for the participants and several other activity stations were set up to spread holiday cheer!
Frances and I had the pleasure of serving hot cocoa to the attendees at the beginning of the event and assisted some young shoppers with finding the right gifts at the end of the night. It was so rewarding to be a part of an event that fostered the season of giving to those who may not have the resources to give as they'd like to. It was an honor to be a part of this holiday event and I hope to be able to work with the organization in the future.
Participants: Masami Wadama and Frances Kane
