Once a family's home, this three story mansion has amazing architecture and history of family and servants living together. Not to mention, a view. A gorgeous view of the ocean and Maine coastline. Once again, it took my breath away.
What was once the servants bedrooms is now rooms full of items for children, adults, prisoners, and other members of communities the Mission serves. These items are used for the Christmas Program. The Christmas Program brings joy to many people during the holiday season, and our group was more than happy to have the opportunity to help bundle, wrap and label gifts.
It may not seem like much to you, but these few hours were inspiring. I feel the desire to give more, to help more. This is a rewarding program for all the volunteers as well as the recipients.
The whole weekend was a whirlwind of an experience. I met some amazing women that I'm proud to call my sisters. I met a dedicated staff of a great organization and was able to give a little back. And I was filled with with a desire to keep on giving. I am honored to have been given this experience, and I am responsibility for sharing it with my sisters, my friends. Pride doesn't even begin to describe what I feel about my Founders' and all that they have done for my organization.
