This winter, nearly 500 people are experiencing homelessness in Washington County.
Everyone who arrives at Good Sam brings a unique story that contains hardship and grief. It can be a life chapter that is deeply distressing and lonely. A gift from you can change this, and help build a community of connection, care, and compassion.
A former teacher and singer in central Vermont—who is mostly homebound because of an autoimmune disease—is giving in her own way. She is passionate about community involvement and wanted to do something special for our guests. An avid quilter, she enlisted other quilters from across Vermont to join the Colorful Quilts with LoveProject.
The result:80 gorgeous handmade heirloom quilts that will bring warmth and joy to each Good Sam guest during the holidays and winter months to come.
The leader of this project happens to be Julie’s mom! We are proud of her efforts, which remind us that we all have the power to impact our community in our own special way.
As our neighbors in need seek emergency shelter beds in higher numbers than ever before, we invite you to contribute today to support our vital work. Your gift—the thread that binds us—will keep folks sheltered, warm, and fed this winter.
Thank you for your generosity,
Rick DeAngelis & Julie Bond
