With hopes to bring comfort and relief to those that are hurting and in crisis, P.E.S.T. Relief International and CPCO of Georgia partnered to bring a little love to those residing at a shelter for domestic violence in Savannah, Georgia. On the day of service, there were 24 women and 39 children being housed and cared for by this domestic violence refuge. Many had them still had the remains of bed bug bites as the home was severely infested and is undergoing treatment for the remediation of these unbiased pests. 27 mattress encasements were donated in addition to the bed bug remediation treatment to protect their new beds.
Our projects included transforming the rose garden into a sanctuary while some of us pampered the ladies and children with hand massages and manicures.  One lady said it was her birthday and that she was so thankful for this treat that “this is the manicure I wanted for my birthday”. 
Pizza, salad and cupcakes were provided as well as “love baskets” that were hand-made to show that each lady is special and loved.  One of the residents had tears streaming down her face as we spoke of how much they are loved and how special they are as we handed out the baskets as a reminder of their beauty and value.   
To end the day, an original painting by a local artist was presented to remind the ladies of our day together and to always remember that they are loved.   After many hugs upon leaving, it was evident that our REST Initiative™ was successful.
