On December 22, 2016.
Ricky's Hope Incorporated had our first Dinner of Dignity for The Homeless. 70 individuals were fed, each person also left with additional food and with clothing that was donated by 4Imprint and Bombas.
It was an amazing time to spend with each individual and to earn their story. It was also an awesome time of collective connection with each person that came out to help.
We want to personally thank :
The following volunteers from American Airlines: Bea Mendoza, Janet Flager, Shawn Williams, Marie Yamilee Bonhomme- Dicks, Steve Mitchell, Leslie Parker, Dawn Anderson, Ramel Bowerman, Ashley Theis, Johnnyette Taylor. We hope we didn't miss anyone but if we did you know our heart and how much we appreciate you.
DMH Enterprises and Sisters Serving With Care: Dennese M.Hopson, Alfontine Robinons, Alisa Drakeford and Bre Morgan- Benson
The 45th Street Oyster Bar crew of: Five & Corrine
and every young adult that came out with their parents, grandparents and mentors to assist.
We also would once again like to thank all of the businesses and restaurants that collaborated with me on this journey.
