"I wanted to thank you from my heart for all the times you came to my home and fed me. I praise God that you are all down there helping people in this way. Thank you so much for caring. It meant a lot to me."
This message is from Brenda. She has been one of our home delivery clients for several years and just relocated to live with family. Thanks to all of you, St. Joseph Social Service Center has been able to provide her not just with food, but also with conversation, connection, and compassion. Many acts of kindness have been shared with Brenda – from the volunteers who call to obtain her “order”, from those who have delivered the food, from the Giving Tree participants involved in her Christmas gifts, and from all of the volunteers, donors, and staff who contribute to the work of St. Joseph’s.
It’s hard to believe we have been through 2 years of this pandemic. Despite the many challenges we have all faced, we are grateful for the support from our community. This has been especially difficult for those who depend on St. Joseph’s for food, as we have had to ask them to stand outside during all kinds of weather just to feed their families. We look forward to welcoming our neighbors back inside very soon!
Thanks to you, St. Joseph Social Service Center is a place where our sisters and brothers can receive help when they need it. Here are just a few highlights of what you helped us do last year:
As we continue to pray and hope for a healthy and peaceful world, we look forward to resuming and expanding services that we had to put on hold. Everything that happens at St. Joseph’s is thanks to the generosity of supporters like you.
We hope that you are able to support our annual appeal in any of the following ways:
As Brenda said, “Thank you for caring.” Thank you for sharing your blessings in so many ways.
