"I just want to reach out to say "thank you" for today. I don't know that you had a lot of people come in to take advantage of the generous shower offer, but I did. It had been 7 days since I lost power and water, been alone the whole time and the news that I could go somewhere to renew myself, made more difference than you might think.
I came in today, and left in tears because I had not been clean in 7 days nor had I been around other people in as long. That shower was probably the brightest spot I had had in some time. You might remember me as the lady who left in gratitude today behind my tears . I drove 25 miles (50 round trip) to get to you today but it made the difference in what had seemed like a hopeless situation for me. Still awaiting a plumber but at least I can feel good for a few days.
Thank you for being there for someone like me who had nowhere else to turn. Your facility was clean and refreshing and I felt at home for the 45 minutes I enjoyed it today. Thank you for opening your doors. You just never know who might be out there in need."

"Many neighbors and Church members were dealing with broken pipes and issues at home. Bill braved the weather to get to their homes to help them. He didn't want to charge them anything as he believes in doing kind things for others. One of our own family members cannot get plumber out until March 23rd, we called Bill and he going there Tuesday to help them. Only reason he is not going Monday is because he is having a root canal done!! He is a real compassionate person who cares for others deeply and always willing to help!"
