A Letter from one of our Volunteers – ICS
I remember the day I was to attend my first Inner City Slickers event. I had a long drive in front of me and so I pondered on what the day would be like. I was so excited to be a part of the “Slickers” and I really hoped that I could help make a difference in a young person’s life.
Due to a missed turn along the way, I arrived just as the wrangler meeting was ending and the kids were starting to arrive. Some of the kids had been involved with the “Slickers” previously and were clearly excited to be a part of such an amazing event. Others arrived quietly and I noticed they seemed to carry the world on their shoulders. As the day unfolded it was so inspiring to see the transformations that I witnessed…in everyone. I truly felt blessed to be a part of something so incredible.
So did I make a difference in a young person’s life that day? I hope so, but what I do know is that a young person made a HUGE difference in my life. Thank you Michael, and the entire Inner City Slicker’s Organization for the selfless work you do every day to make our world a better place. I can’t say enough about your dedication and vision for such a valuable resource, our children…our future.
Keep up the GREAT work and hope to see you Slickers again very soon!
