Carol Hollowell shares her life history in episode three of Nobody Knows Your Story.
Carol tells of her upbringing in Bend, OR; college at Oregon State, business adventures, kidney donation, (which led to looking at life in a different way) and, what brought her and her family to St. George, UT.
As the Executive Director Of Switchpoint, a St. George non profit that assists the homeless and others in need of assistance, Carol has made a huge impact in Washington, County. She has a calling to help those in need and I invite you listeners to spend some time getting to know what Carol Hollowell has to say.
Switchpoint has been able to get more results than traditional homeless shelters where housing and food is offered, but usually not much else. All of our services are free and open to the public. We also have a community garden. The fruits and vegetables are used at the shelter and food pantry.
We operate a Thrift Store to provide affordable clothing and household items to our clients and the community. We also operate a doggy day care, Bed ‘N” Biscuits. Both businesses offer a job shadowing program for our residents and clients. All net proceeds fund the operations at the homeless shelter.
Check them out and PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A DONATION OR VOLUNTEERING.
