Letter: Make It Happen for Yolo County is grateful

One of the silver linings from the COVID-19 situation for me has been gratitude: for the financial stability that I have, for the health and presence of the people in my life and for the ability and resources to care for myself and for others. And, especially now, I am grateful for my home.

I found a wonderful description of the concept of “home” from an article in the Smithsonian magazine: “Be it ever so humble, it’s more than just a place. It’s also an idea — one where the heart is” (The Definition of Home, Smithsonian Magazine, May 2012)

365体育投注For the past six years, I have had the privilege of working with Make It Happen for Yolo County (www.mihyolo.org). We are a nonprofit organization that supports Transition Age Youth moving from foster care into independent living situations by providing furniture, small appliances and other household items. We strive to help Transition Age Youth turn their residences into homes.

May 7 was Big Day of Giving. Despite my flawed predictions of decreased donations, Make It Happen and the Sacramento region in general had the best donation year ever. The gratitude I alluded to earlier? I am so thankful for our compassionate supporters who have provided us with monetary and furniture contributions.

As we like to say about our board members, we are an “all-volunteer, small and hard-working” board! We are currently in need of additional volunteers, especially those with interest in social media/outreach skills. If this is you, please contact us at www.mihyolo.org.

365体育投注Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts.

Jan Judson
Board member, Make It Happen for Yolo County
