Dear Mrs. Lanciano and Students,

On behalf of the homeless men and women we serve, please accept our thanks for the generous donations we received from your school. Your gifts are much needed and will aid the homeless in these cold winter months.

The people we serve live on the streets and have few material possessions. Their "homes" consist of a park bench, a cardboard box, a doorway, sometimes just a square of concrete sidewalk. The needs we try to meet are immediate - a blanket, a pair of socks, a bag lunch, clothing, and spiritual in the form of bibles, rosaries, religious articles, and prayers. Their lives are filled with hardship. Yet, we have found them to be faith-filled and courteous. Our mission is to give them comfort. In return, they thank us for coming, bless us, and praise God for His goodness. Truly we receive far more than we give.

Your gifts will help bring warmth and comfort to their lives.

Thank you and God bless you.
