As I look out the window today, I see only white. The snow darts through downtown buildings like piercing needles. My mind and my concern is with my friends who live out in this powdered sugar whiteout of a mess. This is Colorado, and so we know – sunshine will return.
Much like the changing seasons, the past year at Dry Bones has been metaphorically filled with days of overwhelming sunshine as well a few unrelenting storms.
Today, we continue to be filled with hope in light of all that 2014 has held.
As 2014 comes to a close, many of you are organizing your end-of-year giving plans. Dry Bones would certainly appreciate your support. We are currently seeking to raise $44,000 by the end of 2014 as we fulfill our operating budget and prepare for the success of our 2015 vision.
Thank you for your partnership and support over the course of this past year. We are inspired more than ever, especially on cold snowy days like today, to increase hope and lay out roads of new opportunity – off of the streets – for the hundreds of Dry Bones’ friends out there. As Dry Bones continues and expands its vision for this unique ministry among Denver’s homeless youth population, we thank you for your ongoing thoughts, prayers, and involvement.
With Sincere Gratitude,
The Dry Bones Staff and Board of Directors
