Board honors volunteers, clergy for aiding homeless
Wareham Selectmen put the spotlight on four groups that work locally to bring services to the homeless and low-income individuals.
Board members on Tuesday presented official citations to members of the Wareham Area Committee for the Homeless, Father Bill’s & MainSpring, Damien’s Food Pantry and organizers of the “Nights of Hospitality.” The latter is made up of leaders from local churches that provides the homeless with a hot meal and warm place to spend the night during winter.
Chair Judith Whiteside said that the groups “offer a safe harbor from the elements” and provide an “invaluable resource” to the community.
Tuesday night’s honors continued an ongoing effort by Selectmen to recognize nonprofits and volunteer-led organizations that make Wareham a better place to live.
