John wanted me to tell you thank you.
You see, you kept John’s family from going hungry after he lost his job. That was years ago. John is a successful businessman now, but he has never forgotten the generosity of our community. Generosity you participate in by supporting Catholic Charities.
David, Andi and Sarah wanted me to tell you thank you as well. Watch their stories on YouTube.
Last year, Catholic Charities helped over 70,000 people with food, homes, mental health services, family services and programs that encourage people down paths of independence, truly seeking to make a different tomorrow for each and every one.
I’d like to invite you to be part of those different tomorrows again in 2013.
I occasionally hear people ask what Catholic Charities really needs to do our work – food, clothing volunteers? The answer is God’s grace, generous volunteers and consistent funding. I invite you to consider a monthly gift, either via EBT or credit card. Your gift will not only be consistent, but by increasing your gift just a small amount each month, at the end of the year, you’ll have a made a big difference to our Central Minnesota neighbors; neighbors like John, David, Sarah and Andi.
So, what do we do with your gifts? Well, we asked a few of our program staff to tell us what $100 would do in their program in 20 seconds or less. See what they said.
Thank you for considering supporting Catholic Charities in 2013. May God Bless you and your family during the rest of 2012 and in the coming year.
