Sheila Parker
Sheila Parker organized a drive to collect pantry items for the HMHI families at her employment, Shell Gas Station on Brady in Davenport.

Sheila Parker is a single parent of four daughters. During a challenging time in her life in 2007, Sheila found Humility of Mary Housing as a resource to help stabilize her housing situation, support her in raising her daughters, and find encouragement to return to school. Today, Sheila has degrees as a Certified Nurses Assistant (CNA) and Medical Assistant (MA). She sustains two careers – – working at the Shell Gas Station at 3622 N. Brady in Davenport and running her own business providing home-based support with the elderly. Three of Sheila’s four daughters have graduated from college. Her youngest will graduate soon.

Since the day after Thanksgiving, Sheila and other staff at the Shell Gas Station at 3622 N. Brady Street in Davenport have collected household and clothes items for Housing and Shelter participants. Over the last two weeks, Shell Gas Station collected six large totes of items, valued at over $400.00!

“I just wanted to help make sure Humility of Mary participants had all the things I had during my rough time,” Sheila said.
 
We sincerely thank the Shell Gas Station for support, Sheila for leadership and generosity and all their customers who contributed for their holiday spirit. They will directly enrich the lives of those who are in need.
