The May 2017 Edition of “The Chirp”, the official Sparrow’s Nest newsletter, features an inspirational note from founder Krista Jones.
As we get ready to move into our new space, I think about what this next step truly means. It not only means we can prepare more homemade meals for families undergoing a cancer diagnosis, it also means we can offer more volunteer opportunities to our community, giving people a chance to feel as good as we do every day. This move will offer us one Nest for our staff and volunteers to coexist as they continue helping others in our own backyard. It will allow us more hours in the day to make our meals even better, with the freshest ingredients we can find. Our new Nest will help us cultivate relationships between cancer patients, strengthen involvement in the charity world and bring the community together to offer comfort to our neighbors.
With this new, larger space comes even bigger dreams, some of which we will unveil in the upcoming weeks. Be on the lookout for opportunities to get your children involved in the wonderful works of this organization. Being able to provide a place where we can all come together to perform good works is part of what this whole journey is all about.
At a time when much of the country is in turmoil, Sparrow’s Nest is hoping to do their small part in bringing people together for the common good of helping others.
