Thanking Raymond James for their amazing community spirit!

Recently   two groups of volunteers came out from Raymond James   to volunteer with us in our Gift-In-Kind department. The volunteer teams did an amazing job helping sort, organize and clean our incoming donations of food, clothing and household goods.

It was a joy to have the team from Raymond James with us and we can’t thank them enough for their support of Covenant House and our young people!

Thank you Raymond James!

Our young ladies experience the joy of gardening

The young ladies in our Crisis Program have been working on a garden project since early spring. The project has grown even larger than expected and the girls have loved working on their garden and learning about planting and caring for it.

Recently the girls headed out to a garden center to purchase plants ahead of LifeSpace Gardens coming to teach them about gardening the next weekend. Their excitement as they picked out flowers and vegetables was amazing. The plants were brought to the upstairs balcony and the youth spent time taking them out of the boxes, watering and arranging them. During this time one of the youth started playing her ukulele and singing. It was such a nice, soothing experience for all involved. The youth expressed their gratitude multiple times during the day and were so thankful for the opportunity to be involved in the process of creating the beautiful garden.

The team from LifeSpace Gardens came the following weekend and taught the girls more about planting and taking care of their garden. The youth learned a lot about gardening in general, and about food gardening in particular. They also had an amazing time and loved spending time in their garden. We want to send a big thank you to the folks who made this garden possible, especially the donors who helped us purchase the supplies, including donating the garden consultation and containers from LifeSpace Gardens.

The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul.” - Alfred Austin
