"Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins worth only a few cents.
Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, "Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth, but she, out of her poverty, put in everything, all she had to live on." -- Mark 12:41-44
If you've driven by our Casselberry campus this month, you've seen the Summer Match sign in our parking lot.
We are about a month into this year's match campaign. We are grateful for your gifts, large and small. Together, those gifts have brought us about 3/4th of the way to the goal of raising $60,000.
The clients who line up behind that sign each morning get access to our pantry and much-needed food because of your generosity.
They are grateful.
One of our entry coordinators, Jeannette, takes it from here.
"Tuesday was an exciting day for us at the front desk. We had some clients asking about the meaning of the sign in front of the building. Veronica (entry coordinator) explained that a donor would match the donation with an equal amount for every dollar donated. The first lady immediately gave us $4 in quarters. Then later in the day, another lady asked about it and gave us a $1 bill. Another client listened to the explanation and gave me a $5 bill!"
Three little envelopes. Ten big dollars.
They just wanted to pay it forward.
Every dollar does make a difference.
Their $10 just became $20!
