Letter to the ReGifting Store ......

Februarv1 .2010
Dear Regifting Store,
My name is ************* and I work as an AmeriCorps VISTA with Vancouver's
WHO (Winter Hospitality Overflow) Program. WHO, a partnership between Share,
Council for the Homeless, and more than 40 faith-based and community organizations,
ensures additional shelter space for homeless men, women, couples and families from
November 1-March 31 and is now in its seventh year.
We try to provide the shelter guests with more than just a place to sleep. One thing that seems to help ease stress and brighten peoples' faces is art-any kind of art -I came in to the Regifting Store to try and find supplies I could use for art projects with the shelter guests: things llke magazines for making collages.
The Regifting Store is an incredible place! One of the guests at our family shelter, St. Andrew Lutheran Church, came in last week with business cards for the Regifting Store and put them up on the WHO resource board for the other guests. She raved
enthusiastically about the work you do. I thought you might like to hear how the word
gets spread.
Thank you for your help!
