It's good to have things we can count on, like "April Showers Bring May Flowers."
What is crucial to Angel Interfaith Network are the Partners we can count on, like Louise Inouye.
In addition to organizations, we have many wonderful individuals who partner with us. This month we would like to introduce you to
Louise Inouye who has been volunteering with Angel Interfaith network since 2009. She started by serving weekly at our original facility in South Pasadena at
Calvary Presbyterian Church.
She helped by sorting, counting and stocking donations, by preparing Baby Baskets for newborns, and by mailing out food vouchers. For the past several years she has made a hundred Origami Valentines each February for us to give to the social workers and chaplains as a thank you for their help in making referrals of patients and their families who need help.
Louise, with the support of the women of her congregation, has organized eight fundraisers for Angel Interfaith Network with lovely luncheons, opportunity drawings, and silent auctions at
First Presbyterian Church, Altadena. Our Gate House staff is always delighted to see Louise when she stops by to drop off donations that she has collected. She is a true partner and we appreciate her time and dedication to our mission to serve our patients and families with neighbor to neighbor support.
Those We Serve:
A social worker in the HIV clinic called to request Boost, a nutritional supplement, for Peter, one of her patients. Raquel told her that we had Ensure, but mot Boost. Since his system couldn't handle Ensure, Angel Interfaith was able to offer $20.00 in Food Coupons so that Peter could purchase the Boost he needed.
Victoriaand her five children were in a shelter and were grateful to have a roof over their heads after fleeing domestic violence. We were able to give a supply Pampers and wipes for the little one from Baby 2 Baby, one of our network partners. We provided some toiletries that came from the Democratic Alliance for Action of Santa Clarita and lovely Easter baskets donated by teens from Trinity Presbyterian Church Pasadena. Victoria and her children are safe and grateful for all support they are receiving and we are thankful to our partners for their contributions to our mission of Neighbor to Neighbor support.
