LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Thank You From BAYCSS
All of us from Bay Community Support Services would like to give a big THANKS to all of the incredible Christmas in April Volunteers who did work on three of our group homes in Waldorf on Saturday, April 28. It was a truly amazing sight to behold. We had between 30 and 50 volunteers at each of the three group homes where people with disabilities live. They did maintenance and renovation work which included pruning trees, painting, mulching, replacing floors, power washing and the list goes on and on. Our homes were truly in need and their volunteer time made an enormous difference to the folks who live in the homes.
It was an inspiration seeing so much work being done. Great people all thrilled to be helping out. Groups of volunteers came from all different walks of life to include Comcast, AKA sorority, Knights of Columbus, Old Line Bank and more. It's an opportunity to see first-hand your fellow community members making a difference. It was truly a faith-renewing, feel-good day.
And, the amount of planning and organization that goes into such an enormous project is mind boggling. Many thanks to Sandy Branan from Christmas in April who has been preparing for this event for months. I'm just so pleased Bay Community Support Services was chosen to be part of this incredible endeavor.
I'd also like to thank Congressman, Steny Hoyer for taking the time to come out and thank those great volunteers. It makes all the difference when our leaders take the time to thank people for being good neighbors and humanitarians. We were all thrilled to see him, shake his hand hear his words of appreciation.
The residents of the Bay Community Support Services homes and their families and even their neighbors were thrilled to see the dramatic changes to the homes. Thank you to everyone for your great deeds, for giving of your time and for wanting to help your fellow man. You inspire us all by showing us the power of volunteerism and what can be accomplished when we care about our neighbors. Thank you.
