Everyday. For most people, this word likely conjures up things like ordinary, commonplace, or routine. For those of us at Guild Incorporated, we know everyday acts of kindness are extraordinary. Many of us see strangers reach out to our clients with acts of friendship, housing assistance, employment, etc. These people are Everyday Angels living in our community. Their actions, no matter how ordinary or routine, have a profound effect on those we serve. Each month we honor one of these Everyday Angels for their contribution to our mission.
