DGS Day of Service: Fall 2018

DayofServic2018

In early November, DGS staff volunteered at the Weinberg Housing and Resource Center for our annual day of service. The center is a resource hub for homeless individuals during the day and provides shelter to over 275 homeless adult men and women each night. The day of service had two groups of employees, first, in the early afternoon, a group washed windows and cleared debris from around the front and side of the property. In the evening, a smaller group of employees joined the center’s staff to serve a hot meal to over 200 residents. In addition to the service activities, DGS staff collected socks and toiletries which were taken to the shelter to be distributed to residents. A huge thank you to everyone who participated or donated!
