A Letter From Our Director...
Dear Friend of NICA,
I wanted to take this opportunity to personally thank everyone who came through for the community by providing school supplies and funds to purchase shoes and clothing to distribute to the children of Northside. We featured Katie in our cover story, and I am proud to tell you that she was a client whose children received school clothes and supplies. I know Katie’s children are having a wonderful school year thanks to NICA’s donors.
Each season brings with it new challenges for the residents of Northside, especially those residents who struggle to meet their basic needs. Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner, the holiday season is meant to be a time of joy with family and friends, but for homebound seniors it can be a time of great loneliness, it is easy for the children of the poor to feel forgotten if there are no presents under the tree, and the homeless face the persistent threat of the bitter cold.
For these reasons, winter is a time when NICA needs the support of its donors the most. By standing with NICA in the fight against poverty, you are feeding hungry and home-bound seniors, you are providing presents at Christmas time, and a gift as simple as a gently used coat can stave off the deadly winter cold. Please join NICA in its fight against poverty once again this holiday season with your donations.
With Warm Holiday Wishes,
