The Washington Club honored GMC with a Community Service Award at their annual Have a Heart Luncehon on Valentine’s Day. We are grateful to Arden Batch of the Club and as an active member of Holy Trinity Church in Georgetown for nominating us.
Turnabout is fair play in these sorts of events, and GMC surprised Arden with our own community service award for her work with a homeless individual, Keith. As much as we try to connect with people, sometimes it takes a different approach. Arden reached out to Keith and connected him with a core service agency, eventually getting him into housing. She wins our community service award.
GMC’s consulting psychiatrist, Ron Koshes, gave the keynote speech entitled “The History of Homelessness.” We also debuted the informational video about GMC that Nelson Cuellar, a local filmmaker, made for us.
We are grateful to all of our friends who took time out of their busy day to join us. It was a great event. You can see more pictures of the event in our Have a Heart album on Facebook.
