Thanks for Sharing the Warmth!

Last month, nearly 4,000 comfort items were donated to CitySquare during Sleep Experts’ eleventh Share the Warmth event. Thanks to all of your hard work, members of our community can look forward to a cozy winter! We were there as a few Girl Scouts got to meet up with Shawn Wills, CitySquare’s chief development officer, and a few guys from Sleep Experts to help hand out items.

 

Boxes filled with comfort items like blankets, towels, comforters and more nearly reached the ceiling!

Thankfully, there were plenty of volunteers to set the delivery in motion!

When they arrived, the girls were received by local media, members of the community, and Shawn Wills, chief development officer of this year’s beneficiary, CitySquare.

These girls dove right into the giving spirit by helping unload boxes and passing out donations.

And they weren’t shy when it came to meeting others.

When it was over, they made sure all of the blankets were donated and  were proud to show off their new patch!

Thank you to everyone for supporting Share the Warmth. Our goal was to impact the community and we did just that – right in time for the Holidays!
