Neighbors help neighbors
I am writing this letter to you with both joy and celebration. Joy at becoming a part of the wonderful programs in which "neighbors help neighbors" and continually demonstrate how much our communities care. Celebration because life is precious, giving is beautiful, and because each one of us is special.
We need food and monetary donations. Food is given out to needy folks almost as fast as it comes in. Watch for grocery store specials and think of us. We need cans, boxed meals, peanut butter, pasta, etc. Money donations are needed to meet our building and program expenses.
On that day after Thanksgiving, when many of you will be heading out to get the best deals on those new, hot toys for members of your family, we invite you to think about children and parents who have a hard time living day-to-day. These families would find Christmas impossible without our help. Please bring in unwrapped toys for either a boy or a girl, up to age 12. We will accept toys up to Dec. 9 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. We will be handing them out to our families the following week.
The holiday season can get hectic and even overwhelming. Any support you can fit into your busy schedules would certainly be appreciated by the folks we service.
Executive Director of Parish Cupboard
