To our Family of Pie-
Happy New Year to you all. Thank you seems hardly enough to say for all you did to help Pie serve our senior citizens in 2019. The numbers of food delivered, hours donated, miles driven and funds given, only tell part of the story, a big part certainly, but not the whole story.
The moments shared with our senior neighbors, the time spent listening to someone talk about the pet they used to have and miss so much; the tales from their youth that they haven’t had anyone to share with; their hopes and their fears, their laughter and their tears, the value in these moments is immeasurable and no one may even know about them, except for the drivers and those they deliver to, but they are the most important part of what we do.
It is because of what all of you give, whether it is your time, your talent or your monetary gift, that we are able to share these moments with the wonderful people we are committed to serving. And for that, thank you does indeed, seem hardly enough to say.
So let me say this, I am humbled by your compassion, inspired by your kindness and grateful for your generosity. I have the best job in the world. Every day I am witness to a community that comes forward and turns compassion into action by helping the most vulnerable of our neighbors. It gives me hope. You all give me hope.
Thank you seems hardly enough to say for all you do, two small words for such tremendous acts of compassion and generosity, but thank you for being the best part of humanity and for being a part of the Family of Pie.
Here’s to a hopeful 2020, working side-by-side to fight senior hunger in St. Johns County.
