MARIAN HOUSE LOST POWER FOR 24 HOURS
Due to the storm on Monday, January 9th, Catholic Charities and the Marian House were without power for 24 hours. Our first priority was to serve our lunchtime meal on Tuesday, which was accomplished via a high protein sack lunch. Volunteers arrived early in the morning and began making peanut & jelly sandwiches and packing that with fresh fruit and bottled water, which was distributed to Marian House guests as they arrived for the daily meal. The Hanifen Center, which houses the Family Day Center, a variety of medical services, mail and clothing services, children's and literacy services and many partner agencies, was closed due to the power outage.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, January 11th, we will once again be serving a sack lunch as we restore refrigerators and freezers to working order. However, guests will receive that lunch - along with coffee - inside in the dining room and will have access to restrooms. The Hanifen Center will be open fo…
