Our thanks go out to Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale once again!
Several times over the last few weeks, his trucks have pulled up to our delivery door with necessities and goodies alike! His generous reputation in our city proceeds him… and his latest gifts to SMH are no exception. Imagine our excitement when he proposed a pair of new shoes for every client, their children and our very deserving staff! Yes, it is true! We have received two shipments of cases of new VANS shoes for all on campus!
The clients were so pleased, they designed a banner with special messages from the clients at Jacquelyn campus! Knowing his love of the flag, the banner proudly displayed the American flag, hand drawn by one of our residents. Also acknowledged were the offices of Precinct One Constable, Alan Rosen and our dear benefactor, Kathy Griffin who helped coordinate this “best foot forward”. Kathy has always shown an affinity to the women of Santa Maria and never misses an opportunity to support their recovery.
Not to be outdone, the clients of Bonita House planned a “meet and greet” coming face to face (social distancing, of course) to both Mack and Constable Rosen. They lined up with their children for a chance to say thank you and share stories of their recovery journeys.
