Adrian came to us last week in our clothing room needing help with finding the perfect work gear and some clothing for his new job that he was starting in about one week! He is wearing the overalls he received on his last visit which he loves for everyday wear. Adrian and another client, who are both veterans, really hit it off and started helping each other put together some outfits while they told their stories of life in the past year. Both men were teary-eyed and so thankful for the food, clothing and job assistance support they received from NourishPHX (fka ICM Food & Clothing Bank). They were encouraging each other and saying this year would be better. Before leaving they gave the “COVID” fist bump and side hug. We were happy to witness the camaraderie and hope that these two expressed.
