Leadership Adams donates to local outreach programs

Members of Leadership Adams and Youth Leadership Adams recently made a $1,000 donation to the Adams County Homeless Shelter.

Leadership Adams, a local non-profit organization committed to improving the quality of life in Adams County has donated $5,000 to five local outreach programs.
On Thursday, Dec. 8, members of Leadership Adams and the Leadership Adams Youth Academy presented $1,000 checks to the Adams County Homeless Shelter, the Interfaith House in West Union, the Winchester 3CU Food Pantry, the Manchester Community Care Center, and the Peebles Food Pantry.

The Interfaith House in West Union also recently received a $1,000 donation from the Leadership Adams organization.

“It is our absolute pleasure to give back to our community by donating to these great local charities that do such good work in Adams County,” said Leadership Adams board member, Pastor Michael Parks.
Homeless Shelter Director Bob Boldman, said the group’s donation is critical to the services the shelter provides throughout the holiday season.
“We are blessed to have such an organization that thinks enough of the community to help us out every year at Christmas,” he said. “We’re just overwhelmed by their generosity.”
According to Homeless Shelter Deputy Director Sherry Harris the holidays are one of the shelter’s busiest times.
“We have a lot of individuals who are in need come through here this time of year,” she says, “We usually have a lot of children staying with us so this donation from Leadership Adams is very important.”
For families housed at the Homeless Shelter during the holiday season, the donation ensures that they and their children will have the opportunity to celebrate Christmas.
“We try to make Christmas as much like a home-experience as we can for the families who are here through the holidays,” said Harris. “We have dinner for them, we put up a  Christmas tree, and we make sure there are presents under it Christmas morning for all the children at the shelter.”

One of the recent donations from the Leadership Adams organization went to the food pantry at Winchester 3CU.
