The holidays came early to Iron Gate
December 10, 2014

We were chosen to be a recipient of US Cellular's 30 Days of Good, a recognition of people and organizations that do good all year long. We are Day 14.

Last week a camera crew and national and local US Cellular employees showed up with a U Haul truck and gave us: a 55" TV for the dining room, six Carhartts coats for the dining room/security staff who have to be outside in the morning, 24 US Cellular bags filled with protein items for the grocery pantry (stew, peanut butter) and Kids' Pack items, and 3 large Target bags filled with warm blankets for the guests.

To see the full story and watch two short videos they made, visit their website at Their interview with Caroline Kitalong, our kitchen manager, will bring tears.

A big Iron Gate thank you to the entire 30 Days of Good team. You brought tears us many tears of joy and appreciation. And thank you for recognizing the incredible and dedicated work of the Iron Gate kitchen and dining staff.
