Special Thanks

Our deep appreciation goes out to First Christian Church in Eugene and Ebbert Memorial United Methodist Church in Springfield.  Both churches on their own, unlocked their doors yesterday morning (December 8th), welcomed our guests into their space with hot coffee and tea to get warmed up.  A beautiful gift of kindness and love.  Thank you KLCC for getting the word out about both churches opening yesterday.  Many thanks to the folks that helped out at the churches.  Thank you CAHOOT, EPD and SPD for guiding guests to both churches.  It does indeed take a community to care for one another.
