We received a somewhat desperate phone call from the Executive Director of a Reno-area human services program. Get this: among other helpful actions and services they provide for women and their newborns and youngsters-in-diapers…IS DIAPERS, yes FREE packages of disposable diapers! And the good news report is that they are funded do this month after month! What would such an agency want from Dreams Foundation, Inc.? Certainly not diapers, but we’re known for meeting unmet dreams so why not give us a try.
That’s the story behind the headlines: DFI performed a planned “Community Work Project” to the Women & Children’s Center of the Sierra. The unmet dream, as it were, was someone who could swoop in on a weekend when their agency was closed, and coincidently at the same time low on diapers, and first clean, and then custom paint over 5,200 square feet of storage shelving at this community services agency, also a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. What better a call to Dreams Foundation, Inc., and there we were with our volunteers ready to meet an unmet dream!
