Each quarter one member of our team chooses a volunteer outing for the group and for the first quarter of 2016, I was tasked with choosing our activity. Yesterday, we had the joy of serving Genesis Women’s Shelter in Dallas. The incredible women and children who live in this shelter are survivors of domestic and sexual violence, and Genesis is their stepping stone to a safer and better life. Our role was to provide 15 Easter goody bags for the women at the shelter, which included daily living supplies such as soaps, basic first aid and even a little chocolate for something sweet. We also received a tour of the facility, and saw firsthand the opportunity for success and healing Genesis provides.
I was the lucky one in our agency to choose this quarter’s cause. Women’s rights and social justice are my passion, and Genesis was the perfect fit when it came to finding a simple, personal and impactful way to help women who deserve the best.
As a team, C. Pharr is always honored to help those in need, and we look forward to next quarter’s volunteer day soon! Check out the photos from our volunteer day and see more information on Genesis here: http://www.genesisshelter.org
