Expressions of Gratitude
To Generation Church of Narragansett for painting the second floor bedrooms, baths, and halls at Welcome House and for making window treatments and hanging blinds brightening and personalizing the rooms.
To the Peace Dale Congregational Church for designating the month of September as mission month and designating all proceeds to benefit Welcome House. Also wish to recognize its willingness to lease property to Welcome House to help expand the transitional housing program and partner with us on the winter shelter bed initiative.
Wakefield Baptist Church for sponsoring Chai-Tea to benefit Welcome House and for funding to repair the flooring on the second floor.
A word of thanks to Diana Cordeiro, VP Corporate Accounting for the Corvias Group and several of her co-workers who volunteered their time on November 14 to provide guests of Welcome House with a full course Thanksgiving feast, paint the dining room, make electrical repairs and help rake leaves. By the end of the day, the dining room was bright and inviting, the yard looked great and there were smiles on everyone’s faces as the turkey dinner was served. As one guest who was staying in our winter shelter observed: “I am really going to enjoy this meal. I have not been treated to something this good in a long, long time”.
Already this year, the following people & companies have graciously made donations to the Welcome House:
