True Kindness

PADS Volunteer Marilyn Yuhas had this to share about Grundy Area PADS...

"True kindness is when you do something for someone who can never repay you. Last night I stopped by Peace Lutheran Church to check on the volunteers and the guests. We had a full house with 13 guests including one family and a pregnant mother. It  was determined that when the second shift started to make sandwiches for the  guests that there was not enough bread or ham. I told everyone I would go to Aldi's and get bread and ham. When I got to Aldi's I saw a friend of mine, Sammy from Maria's. He  asked me what I was doing and I told him I was getting lunch food for the shelter guests. Sammy is in his late 20's and bless his heart he got his wallet out and gave me $15.00  and told me he wanted to pay for the food. That is what I call a person with a good heart and sees that kindness is the way everyone should live their life! Not getting any credit other than the feeling he has in his heart to give to those less fortunate than him. Any act of kindness is welcome to ensure the homeless population has a safe and warm environment during the cold winter months. If you cannot volunteer or make a donation, perhaps you would like to make a meal and share on one of the colder nights. If you would like more information please feel free to contact me. Your kindness makes a difference in the lives of the less fortunate."

Thanks Marilyn for sharing your story with us!
