Welcome Home Friends and Supporters:
Welcome Home recently received a generous donation that recognizes the tremendous efforts of our volunteers and supporters over the last four years. Our appreciation goes out to this anonymous donor, and all of you, for supporting our work. Below, please find the heartwarming note that was included with the check.
"To the Leadership and Volunteers of Welcome Home:
Enclosed please find a donation to support the outstanding work of Welcome Home. Day by day your organization acts on behalf of newly arrived immigrant families and other persons in need, and this level of generosity with your time and effort is rare, indeed.
Many decades ago, my family and I came to America as immigrants, so I know the burdens of dislocation and relocation. Now I am pleased to have the chance, through you, to help other families arriving to our great land. Our country needs these people and always will. The work of everyone at Welcome Home to gather, sort, stack, organize and distribute the basic things to establish a safe and comfortable home for those who they may only barely know is remarkable, and irreplaceable.
Thank you, thank you, and thanks again.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to support your work."
