Giving Back

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about the holidays? If you’re like most people, you probably think of food! The holidays are surrounded by friends, family, and food. Every 4th Monday of the month the Jaywalker Lodge men prepare food for the homeless, and last weeks happened to fall on Christmas Eve. It was a great time for the men to be grateful for what they have as well as an opportunity to give back. Giving back has become a vital part of our recovery and not just for friends and family but also for the people in need around us. There are so many homeless people in our world…in our own communities…who, for whatever reason, don’t have the opportunities for these holiday feasts. We have been given so much over the years and the least we can do is give back! We encourage everyone to get involved in any way possible.
