Here is the group presenting their check to our Executive Director!! Thank you to all who were involved in this very special event!! Pictures are on Facebook.
This morning our executive director, Lisa Patten, presented the Reinhart Guest House at the James River Rotary Club! What a great group! Thanks for the invite!
Thank you to Bon Secours St Mary’s Hospital Healthpartners Laboratory staff for collecting donations for the Reinhart Guest House this month! This is the first of many drops we are expecting from them this month! Great job & thank you!!!
Now THIS is what it’s all about. This is a story provided by our current guest Diane Hughes from Woodbridge, VA.
“My husband had a cardiac arrest running midway through the Monument 10K run April 19, 2016. It was discovered he had blockages and required open heart surgery with a triple bypass. He is being discharged now 1 week later. My family and I will be forever grateful for the refuge and oasis the Reinhart Guest House has provided for us with the grace of giving. Each and every staff member and volunteer was warm and welcoming. The accommodations made available to us were a source of beauty and restoration – a true respite and shelter in the storm. Our hearts and souls were all strengthened and nourished by the gracious giving of the volunteer meal providers. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!”
Special thank you today to one of our first volunteers. Babs Cohen has been coming to the house every Tuesday since we opened to write thank you notes! We appreciate your commitment and dedication to our mission- we love you!
