This October was a huge success for the Welcome House; a special thanks goes out to all of those who bought a pumpkin for a purpose! Out of the 16,000 that were dropped off at the Congregational Church, all of the pumpkins have now found a proper home. The Fall season is crucial for the success of our organization going forward. However now November is upon us, we will gradually transition into the crisp coldness of Winter. The Winter months are a busy time for shelters in general. With snow in our near future the rooms in our buildings will be in high demand. With all of the guests we are expecting this Winter, our demand for food and supplies will be larger than ever. Warm blankets and Winter clothing are some of the highest items on our wish list currently. For further details on how to contribute to the Welcome House see the rest of our website specifically, our “Get Involved” page.
