Last night, the non-profit Women’s Lunch Place had a fundraising event and Gentle Giant was a proud sponsor. Women’s Lunch Place is an organization that aims to provide a safe, comfortable daytime shelter for women. They offer nutritious meals, computer time, laundry services, hot showers, beds for napping and healthcare services. Their true mission is to treat ladies with dignity and respect in order to foster a community committed to meeting each woman’s needs.
Gentle Giant sent out a few of our most prestigious movers to the existing WLP facilities last week to help pack up items for storage. They moved the rest of the items to a temporary storage facility for four months while the new WLP center is built. During the fundraiser we attended, they displayed their projected plans for the new WLP facility.
One of the women that shared her story last night talked about the tremendous impact Women’s Lunch Place has had on her life. It was touching to know that Gentle Giant was able to play a small part in sustaining their facilities.
When Gentle Giant started, we knew that at our core we truly wanted to help people. Being able to do so on and off the job is a celebrated victory at Gentle Giant, and we greatly look forward to taking on more charitable work.
