Café Reconcile – An update from Jeffery.
Café Reconcile hosted its 2nd Annual Alumni Christmas Party on December 10th, 2018.
When you mix cookies, donuts, toys, and kids it’s a sugar rush show and the kids turned the café into their own play zone! We let them run around until it was time to leave and everyone had a smile on their faces. Activities included ornament and cookie decorating, donuts on a string game, plus food and toys. We had a great time handing out the gifts funded in part through a grant from the Hilton Foundation (Thanks Hilton Foundation!)
This is one of the most important and exciting events of the year for me as the Alumni Coordinator, so being in the position to support our Alumni Leadership Council is an amazing opportunity for me to give back. Showing appreciation to our students and alumni for making the life changing decision by coming to Reconcile and completing the program to better their life and have hope for a brighter future for themselves and their kids is a rewarding part of my job.
Here’s a couple photos from the night featuring Jasmine, Eri’Shine, Eldraude, Jamal, Ernest, Thaddelisha, Mussy, Irvian, Nick, Antonisha, Latasha, Rendell, Lauren, Joyce, Maia, and Densel.
Happy New Year and see you in the café!
