Congratulations to Robert Hanby on being awarded the first Spirit of Kindness Certificate in Grand Island! Thank you for volunteering your time and being a role model for others! You always bring a smile and a laugh to those around you!
Crossroads Mission Avenue Executive Director Daniel Buller shares, “Robert has been a tremendous man to have around the mission and the store. He is someone who does not let the circumstances of his life get him down – in fact, just the opposite. Not only has he excelled in the program to better his own life, but he reaches out to the other men at the mission and to the community to make other peoples lives better. At the mission he serves other men by caring for and tending to their needs. He has worked to help make sure that men have a safe, secure, drug and alcohol free facility to get well and off of the streets. He has done this by working hard and volunteering his time and attention to come alongside staff. He has also given up to 8 hours a day volunteer work (nothing that was required of him) to help build the Thrift Store and daily works hard to make it better. Robert is helping to sustain a Mission that will serve hundreds of homeless men in the city of Grand Island this year. Robert has become a face that the public expects to see at the Grand Island Mission Avenue Thrift Store, and they seek him out because he always makes people laugh and smile. Robert is an inspiration to many, showing that we can all make a difference. He deserves this kindness award!”
