Holts Summit woman offers helping hand to homeless
Thursday, July 26, 2012
Her name might not be as recognizable as some other local philanthropists. But to those who are familiar with “Sunshine” or “Miss Connie” — particularly the Callaway County homeless population — she is a helping hand when it is most needed.
Connie Cashion of Holts Summit is one of the few people members of the county’s homeless population will interact with after years of bringing them food and other supplies.
That may be why she was so much more successful than SERVE Inc. employees and volunteers when she went out in the early morning hours Wednesday to conduct the annual summer homeless count.
