It feels like winter is coming but all is beautiful as we drive to the Clothing Distribution.
It was a sweet experience to give to those in need and to have the building filled with wonderful spiritual music. Many Elders and Sisters were there to help as well. Clothing is supplied by Church Humanitarian.
The Employment office was again asked to be there to help anyone desiring job search assistance. We were given a tiny corner of the cultural hall and it was great. We had people asking if we could get them a job but we did not have a large crowd asking for help. Yet we did have some nice conversations helping some people who were interested in improving their ability to articulate their accomplishments and skills and present their potential value to an employer. We also had an Elder who is going home in six months, very interested in what we offer. He will be in the class Elder Hoopes gives to those finishing their missions.
Yes we had fun with some of the clothing especially hats.
When distribution day was done, Salvation Army truck came to pick up. The agreement between the Church and Salvation Army here in Detroit is that with this supply, they agree to do as Deseret Industries does and give job opportunities for those in the Church needing job experience and accept Bishop's orders as well.
