Carew’s Christmas Crew


‘Twas 2 days before Christmas, in his new home.
Mr. Carew worried he’d lose much that he owned.

His clothes, his books—furniture and more,
Were all with a storage company, closing its doors,

He worried then panicked, this problem was vast—
He’d lose all his possessions if he couldn’t get it out fast!  

We called Temple Baptist and UNC APPLES,
And reached out to friends from Duke Chapel,

A big team assembled to load the U-Haul!
Rev. Mofield and MK gave the rallying calls.

From storage to truck, from truck to apartment,
The volunteers emptied the whole storage compartment.

And then, in a twinkling, it was finished and done —
Many hands made light work, and they even had fun!

What wonderful folks, arms strong and hearts true,
Came out to move in dear Mr. Carew.

‘Twas a holiday miracle and a grand ballyhoo!
From the bottom of our hearts, we truly thank you!

**A special shoutout also to Snehan and Jake, the two Advocates who supported Mr. Carew in his housing search!
