1,306 Pairs of Socks

A week before Thanksgiving, Soul’s Harbor and Genesis Center of Kaufman received 1,306 pairs of socks from Scurry-Rosser Elementary School located in Scurry, Texas. Each one of the elementary school children collected new socks from their family and friends. On the right, holding the sock “check” is Pastor Nancy who runs the Genesis Center of Kaufman. The Genesis Center accommodates women and children affected by domestic violence in Kaufman County. A Big “Soul’s Harbor” Thank you to Scurry-Rosser Elementary School and all the people who donated for our Thanksgiving dinner.

Soul’s Harbor Health Fair

On November 12th, Soul’s Harbor held its first ever Health Fair. We invited Parkland Hospital and Prevent Blindness. Our guys received free flu shots from Parkland Hospital and free eye exams from Prevent Blindness. For our residents that needed eyeglasses, they received free eyeglasses vouchers from Prevent Blindness. We also invited other homeless shelters and homeless providers to this event. Our kitchen crew provided dinner for everyone who attended. Pictured above is City of Dallas Judge Melodee Armstrong receiving her flu shot from the Parkland staff. Thank you Prevent Blindness and Parkland Hospital.
