Hope Lodge is a place where cancer patients and caregivers can stay while undergoing treatment. It was a humbling experience to serve those who are going through such tough challenges at this time. The residence were so grateful that we brought them lunch. Small things done with great love bless many.
Even something as small as making a meal and serving it blesses both the giver and the receiver. Service connects and unifies people. Notice the white board says, “Cooking up hope in honor of Lisa”. We lost our friend and coworker, Lisa Carter, to Pulmonary Hypertension this year and last year she nominated Hope Lodge as a service project. So this year we all voted to honor Lisa’s request. The residence were asking who Lisa was and it was neat to share her light with them. She was such a kind person. Even Lisa’s smile was a small thing that gave so much light to everyone around her. Serving at Hope Lodge was a great experience for both our awesome team and the residents. Service creates unity with those you serve with and the people you serve. We will definitely be back.
