Operation Homeless Connect
Posted on May 16, 2014 by Lori Wischmann
Have you ever done something for someone else and felt so good about it for days? That is how we are feeling at Xenon. We were asked to participate in a community event that was held at Creighton University on March 28th. The event is called Homeless Connect.
Homeless Connect is a service that reaches out to the homeless community. The event provides services to help facilitate a transition back into the community. They have federally run programs to help with housing, large companies there to help with employment, food, bank services and also medical services.
How does Xenon fit into all of this? We were able to provide the best service of all. The students were able to make these people feel great about themselves. We had 15 students there helping. We were able to provide the community with almost 300 haircuts that day. There is nothing more gratifying than seeing someone walk out with a smile on their face.
