Compassionate Police Partners with Showering Love

Compassionate Police Partner meets Showering Love

Recently, we received this letter of commendation from Cristian Palmieri, a compassionate police partner with a heart for the homeless:

On 5/7/2020 I was invited to be a part of an ever-growing family of like-minded individuals who care more about others than they do themselves; Showering Love. I met some absolutely unique individuals with incredible backstories that truly show the strength of human perseverance. Jeanne Albaugh greeted me. She is the founder of Showering Love, and the mother of “Grace”. Jeanne is a kind-hearted, polite, lovely young lady who, experiencing homelessness herself a few years ago, set out to help those in need by providing something that is taken for granted on a day-to-day basis; a warm shower and some fresh, new clothes.

Then, I met David, her brother. He also experienced homelessness with his sister and is now a hands-on helper aboard “Grace”.  The other team members, Laura and Gena help keep “Grace” clean and ready for action! Scotty, the driver, puts Grace in her place!  And, no doubt, the star of the show is “Grace”; the bus that provides an on-the-go bathroom, fresh clothes, hot shower, and toiletries for those individuals experiencing homelessness.

My experience with this incredible team has given me something that I thought was lost; hope. Showering Love’s message and mission reverberated within me. It sincerely showed what caring human beings are capable of when they truly want to help one another. Since she has come from difficult times herself, Jeanne definitely has the right idea when it comes to helping those in need. Her team fulfills and executes her goals perfectly alongside her. Like a well-oiled machine, Showering Love gives those individuals experiencing homelessness a unique and private experience.  It starts inside of “Grace” with a simple smile. Each team member provides a crucial and individual role in every experience. Some help with hand washing, others help with toiletries and dirty laundry, but all team members provide one thing that is more valuable than anything else; hope.

Hope for the Homeless

I sincerely believe that Showering Love, in all of its components, is a life-changing and life saving entity that embodies what human beings are capable of with just a little love. I will thank them every day for welcoming me into their team with open arms, and for changing my life for the better.

Thank you,

Cristian Palmieri
