Thank you from St. Isidore Catholic Church
We would like to express our sincerest thanks for the 176 books you donated to the annual St. Isidore Thanksgiving Drive! On Sunday November 21, we were able to provide full Thanksgiving meals to 310 families to take home and cook.
Due to your generosity every child that walked through our doors that night, from infants to teenagers, was able to receive between five and seven almost new books. All remaining books, board games and videos/dvd's that remained after the drive were sent to services to local residents. Thank you for feeding the minds of those that hunger for it while others feed their stomachs!
On behalf of our Thanksgiving 2010 Coordnator, Michelle Peluso, and St. Isidore, I thank you for generously answering our request and making our 2010 Thanksgiving Drive so successful.
Sincerely, Ane Berg Director Human Needs Ministries St. Isadore Catholic Church
