Each year we send out Christmas and New Year’s greeting to our supporters and friends. We always send a staff photo as we want everyone to see just who is behind our small but wonderful food bank. This is a note I received this year after our photo went out:
“Thank you so much for the Christmas card. I particularly liked the picture and the message! Wouldn’t it be nice if all neighborhoods in all American cities looked like the beautiful people in your group! Best wishes for a happy and successful 2017.”
This is the photo:
And the author included a $100 check for us! We were thrilled and extremely grateful!
The Food Bank @ St. Mary’s serves an enormous mix of cultures and ethnicities. We strive hard to have a great variety of foods that appeal and are culturally appropriate for our neighborhood clients. Our staff and volunteers also reflect that diversity. We wouldn’t have it any other way! It is an opportunity to learn from one another, be able to serve our neighbors and be the light we want to see in the world.
From all of us, our staff, our Board, our volunteers, we wish you the Happiest of New Years and pray that 2017 is a year full of joy, blessings and great happiness for you and yours.
