United Way Day of Caring
On the morning of September 30, more than twenty volunteers from Beverly-Hanks & Associates arrived at our doorstep with shovels, drills, and even a tractor in tow. The crew worked for hours to build raised beds in a garden behind our new facility at 705 Oakland. 
The project took place as part of United Way's annual Day of Caring, where more than 300 volunteers from Henderson County form teams and are matched with work assignments submitted by local nonprofit organizations. 
The garden built by our amazing volunteers will provide an opportunity for students at the newly expanded Grotto Therapeutic Center to learn to plant, care for, and harvest herbs and vegetables. The fruits of this labor will then be used to supply ingredients for our Feed the Need culinary program. 
We are so grateful to the Beverly-Hanks team for all their hard work! 
Notes of Autumn Fall Festival and Wine Tasting
Join us on November 5th for an evening of food, music, and a tasting of more than 25 seasonal and holiday wine varieties! This is a great opportunity to buy your Thanksgiving and Christmas wine while supporting a good cause. St. Gerard House will receive all proceeds from ticket sales. 
The event will take place from 6-8pm at Just Vino in Flat Rock.
