St. Matthew’s House was recognized yesterday by Governor Rick Scott and his cabinet at the Florida State Capitol in Tallahassee. President and CEO of St. Matthew’s House, Vann Ellison, was on hand to receive a resolution from the governor and deliver brief remarks to the gathering, thanking Governor Scott for his support and hands-on volunteer efforts at St. Matthew’s House.
“Legislators and officials pass laws, enact regulation, and provide funding. But one of the most impactful things you can do is to serve another person. When you are talking to a man or women in our shelter you are showing that person they are not alone. You are showing them they matter and their life has value and you do care.” – Vann Ellison
Support St. Matthew’s House at Year-End
With the stock market booming, it is a great time to give. At the same time, there is uncertainty with the tax laws and the normal economic fluctuations. It is unique time to support an organization that is really changing lives.
