The world lost a very special person on September 30, 2017. Nate Flanagan, a beloved son, brother, grandson, uncle and friend lost his life to suicide at the age of 27.
A new project called Nate's Way has been created in his honor.
Nate was very passionate about caring for people in need, and had recently met a homeless man with whom he developed a very special friendship.
Nate's family, friends, and community will be feeding the homeless in Civic Center Park (meet at the Voorhies Memorial on the corner of Bannock and Colfax) on the 9th of every month.
Soon, Nate's Way will also include education about depression, suicide, acceptance, and the deep and lasting impact of not feeling accepted. There will be many opportunities to be involved in this meaningful and impactful project as we move forward.
Please support his family as they grieve this unimaginable loss by signing up to volunteer, or donate needed supplies to support their effort. You will be contacted via email to set up arrangements for drop-off or pick-up.
Good will come from bad. Our voices and deeds will be heard and seen. Nate will never be forgotten.
As you walk this earth we ask, in Nate's honor and memory, that you be more accepting of those that are different from you, more aware of people who are struggling, and remember, the power of the impact you can and do have on the people around you-- please make it loving and kind.
