The ZUDA community gives love awaySupporting the Tubman House
During the 2012 holiday season, ZUDA hosted a Giving Tree at each studio location to support children and families at the Tubman House. Part of what makes the ZUDA community so awesome is the way it is so willing to support others and each other.
Tubman House is a transitional living community for young, homeless parents and their children. Tubman provides a home, on-site child development, and support for families to pursue growth and healing.
At Tubman, residents are forging new traditions — as young adults and as new parents. It was amazing to see the community rally and support them in defining healthy rhythms and traditions for the season.
The trees were filled with children's toys, food items, home goods and all kinds of wishes from the families. Below is a statement from its founder Bridget Alexander:
Consider us completely overwhelmed by the generosity of the ZUDA community! This definitely exceeded our imaginings — and today we had the very happy task of calling a few graduate families and letting them know we could help them out this Christmas. When our residents graduate, it takes all they have to cover the rent and meals so the holidays are usually very simple. We are excited to be able to offer toys to all the children, most of whom where born and spent the first year of life at Tubman.
Thank you for giving love away this holiday season!
