Message from Donna Quirk, Executive Director
Ten Rules for getting rid of the blues. Go out and do something nice for someone else, then repeat it 9 times. Thank you for helping the House of Yahweh to do something nice for the people who come to us.
Thank you for your generosity. Thank you for helping us to continue our work and to keep on Planting Hope. With your support SBOC plants Hope in the hearts and minds of our clients. Hope for protection from being forced to live on the streets and hope for them to build a better future for their families. This is work I cannot do without your help. It takes a community.
You are the light, the catalyst. You are the world movers and shakers. You, with your time, talent, and treasure, are an essential part of our efforts to make the world a better place. We are most grateful, and much blessed by your presence and your generosity.
Thanks to those who are a part of our community. To those friends, whom I have not yet met, I extend an invitation to come, visit the House of Yahweh’s South Bay Outreach Center, and join our community. Come to serve and to be served.
Thank you for your kind thoughts and words, for your prayers, for your financial contributions, and for the time and energy you give to those who are less well off in the world. It is you, those with the generous and happy hearts that make the world a welcoming place to be.
