Rakes Report Christmas Giving 2017

After we spent most of the 2016 football season feeling Bad, we raised some money for the Center for the Homeless in South Bend and did some Good. It was so much fun that it seems like it would be foolish not to get together and do it again, so we’re running it back to a) Help people b) See how creative folks get with their comments.

The organization we're going to contribute to does a lot of wonderful things for the people of South Bend. Steve Camilleri, the executive director for the CFH, provided this explainer of what his group does in the community:

*It's hard to believe that the Center for the Homeless has been around for nearly 29 years. We'll celebrate that anniversary on December 18th. Even more hard to believe is that over 60,000 people have been touched by our mission over these years. The Center's mission is to help break the cycle of homelessness, and it's been such a gift to see people transform their lives and get back on their feet. Like a university, guests that arrive at CFH focus on their "major", and take classes, programming, and seek the help they need in the area they need it most. As they achieve success in that area, they wrap around other opportunities, much like elective courses, that can be for personal edification, enjoyment or education. All in all, CFH tries to meet the needs of everyone that walks through her doors with dignity and respect. We have found that each guest is a gift and has so much to give, and when you hold a high expectation of them, they rise to the occasion! "
