We’d like to say thanks to Yellow Boomerang for their amazing generosity! Last week, Fred & Anna dropped off $1500 worth of new jackets, coats, sweatshirts, and sweatpants – all amazing stuff and so needed as we get closer to hypothermia season. Fred & Anna have already been donating meals to Bailey’s Shelter for years through Dast2Dast and wanted to do more to help. Well, they sure did!

Another reminder that The Potomac School is full of awesome students! Last week, we went to pick up 30 cleaning baskets for our Welcome Home kits from the 10th grade class. This makes 5 years in a row that students have done something wonderful for homeless neighbors moving into their new homes. The future is bright!

We are happy to announce Mihran Miller as the recipient of our Allie McConnell Youth Service Award, which is given to an Outstanding Youth Volunteer every year. Mihran first volunteered with his mother, Joy, during the Thanksgiving holiday in 2020 at the RPC Shelter in Arlington. In 2021, Mihran and Ms. Miller contacted Donald Richardson because Mihran needed to earn a Boy Scout merit badge and he wanted to do something to benefit his homeless neighbors. Mihran discussed ideas with shelter staff and decided to create a pamphlet that would list free and resources that are available in the Arlington area that would be beneficial to people with low incomes. Mihran created the pamphlet and now, RPC staff hand it out to residents leaving shelter for housing, and to clients who use the drop-in day program at RPC. With this creation, Mihran did receive his merit badge, and has helped many of our clients. We are proud to recognize Mihran Miller with our Allie McConnell Youth Service Award.

Our Volunteer of the Year for 2022 is Shelley Brosnan and she was not able to be at the ceremony as she was volunteering! The 2nd Saturday of the month is her day to pack and deliver food for Food and Friends and she is as committed a volunteer as you can find. Shelley Brosnan has long volunteered with Volunteer Fairfax and other organizations. Prior to COVID, a retired Ms. Brosnan was volunteering seven days a week in Northern Virginia, often much more than 40 hours a week. When the pandemic began, her children told her she’d have to stop or slow down so as not to put herself at risk. Nevertheless, she found ways to serve.

Mrs. Brosnan had heard about NHH before through Volunteer Fairfax and had been involved through her church, Accotink Unitarian. When she learned about the bagged lunch program at New Hope Housing, she thought that would be a good contactless service project to get involved with. Since she began making meals 2 years ago, she has served at least 230 hours that we know about. She has helped make more than 2,000 lunches. These are always helpful, but were especially so during the earlier parts of the pandemic when we had many people in isolation and needed to get them food regularly. You can see her at the shelter every Friday, dropping off lunches and greeting guests. When we have emergencies or people dropping out of their regular service, Mrs. Brosnan has often jumped in to make sure no one goes hungry and we don’t have to scramble to get dinner covered. One example of this is when a group had to cancel bringing a special dinner to our group home Max’s Place a few days before Easter. She quickly jumped in and made up a wonderful spread. For her consistency, dedication, and cheerfulness, we’re proud to call Shelley Brosnan our Jim Lund Volunteer of the Year.

Sending thanks today to our friends at The Brigade of Mercy! (@brigadeofmercy ) Yesterday, they delivered dozens and dozens of cleaning supplies to Bailey's Shelter. These items are included in our Welcome Home Baskets as clients move to their own housing. They are also used in abundance at the shelter for clients to help keep their room and living spaces clean. We're grateful for this useful and meaningful gift!
