"You can do whatever you need to with my picture, as long as you pray over it."
These two brothers, Brian and Damien, visited the Eye Clinic to get an exam and pick up a pair of replacement glasses respectively. Brian had originally received glasses as a high school student and now that he has graduated, continues to use Skyline as an important vision resource. "When I need to see, I come to Skyline!"
One of our new patrons today has been in America for 18 years but originally lived in Chihuahua, Mexico. She was referred to Skyline from the Latino Community Development Agency. She said in Spanish that she is in a bad situation. She has two kids and currently lives with her parents. Although she used to work as a housekeeper, it is now difficult to find a job because her father has Alzheimer's. This is hard for their family because he will often yell and get mad for no reason. When asked if she had anything else to add, she only said she hadn't expected to get help as soon as she did once she'd visited Skyline. #voicesofskyline
At skyline we try to make fresh produce available as often as possible. The health of our patrons is priority. #skylineurbanministry #veggiesfordays
Today is the first day of Clothes 4 Kids distribution. Families are visiting Skyline to pick up school uniforms so that they will be ready and confident for the new school year.
Today we received a 100 lb donation of school supplies for the upcoming Back to School event! Support like this helps Skyline provide as many important tools to children as possible when they set off to receive their education. And of course they will have a lot of fun, too!
The event will be at rotary park on the 22nd, from 9 am - 11 am. If you're interested in getting involved (by donating or volunteering) contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Skyline's lobby can get pretty crowded. After the initial rush there are still plenty of people waiting to get groceries. The group is always diverse but one thing draws everyone together: the struggle to put food on the table.
