This group of lovely volunteers are our next door neighbors from St. David’s Episcopal Church. They walk over to visit us at the downtown shelter, our Social Services Center, once a month and read two to three books to the children after dinner. The volunteers are so much fun as they interact with the children, animate different parts of the story, sing songs, and engage with craft activities for everyone to enjoy. The best part is after storytime when the children are served a special treat of fresh homemade cookies with milk before bedtime.

Thank you for Entercom and Majic 95.5 for treating these faithful volunteers to a visit with Joey of the Broadway production, War Horse, playing at Bass Concert Hall. Joey is a LIFE SIZE horse puppet that stars in this show. Click here to visit our Facebook album to see photos of the volunteers with Joey the war horse.

Diana Dawson is the Director of Community Engagement at St. David’s Episcopal Church and organizes Bedtime Story Brigade that includes six to eight members from the church each month. St. David’s has also organized an Easter Egg Hunt at the Texas Capitol for the children in our shelter. Thank you for this wonderful partnership and this activity for the children who are experiencing homelessness.

Thanks for the fabulous opportunity to honor our May Volunteers of the Month, St. David’s Episcopal Church Story Time Brigade!
