It appears that we may have been a wee bit focused on giving to others over the past couple of months, and pushed our own needs aside. It took receiving a lovely gift from one of our volunteers to open our eyes to this fact. The card that was included with the gift says it all.

In Jennifer's honor, we have added a few items onto our Amazon Wishlist for use by our volunteers and staff members. None of the items are very expensive: left-handed pens, legal pads, manila envelopes and of course, paper towels and toilet paper. We will be adding to the list throughout the week. www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1MZILKZFBBTOK?ref_=wl_share

Order will be delivered January 6th! Thank you 😊

Thank you!! Thick black Sharpies too please.

Thank you everyone!!

Look for some toilet paper on Jan 6.

Order will be delivered Jan 6th. Thank you for all that you do!

Please Help me

As a left handed person - I’ve never seen left handed pens before! interesting

FYI Amazon just notified me that they attempted delivery and failed. I went through similar a while ago and it got to the point I had UPS return the items because they could not understand your business hours and the item would not get to you in time. Is there someone you can contact at UPS or FedEx or whoever to ensure you get what we are all trying to send you?

Done!😊

Been a lefty for over 40 years and never even heard if a left handed pen until now!😳

😂😂😂😂 i love this, Jennifer is great.!! I wiped my hands on my pants and kept it moving too !!!

I have a leftie son and grandson and have never heard of a left handed pen. Interesting!

Well deserved!

It is customary for the executive director of each non-profit to write an end-of-year letter to donors, listing all of the organizations accomplishments. In order to effectively accomplish this, ours would be more like a series of books and each of you would have a chapter. It definitely wouldn’t be something I could fold neatly into a business-size envelope, nor post on social media.

This is the busiest time of year for emergency referrals and right now, there are families who need us. Taking time to write about what we have accomplished would take away from that, and even on New Years Eve, that remains our mission.

I look forward to sharing stories with you about what we have accomplished together. Now is not the time.

To each of the families we work with, we know this a difficult time for you. On behalf of our donors, sponsors, volunteers and staff members, we want you to know that we are standing beside you. YOU are some of the greatest gifts to this world. We won’t leave you behind.

Respectfully,

Our family have been thankful to have been able to donate to your organization this year and witness multiple other family that have done the same! Generosity, kindness towards others, are the best traits we can teach our children. What your organization achieve all year around for people is a beautiful thing, and I am hoping to be able to volunteer this year. I want to show by exemple to my foster children that there is always someone out there to help. There is always hope ! Thanks to organization like yours ♡

I truly can't thank you enough for allowing our family to volunteer this year. We are better people because of you and your organization. We'll be there in 2021 to help you fulfill your mission in any way we can. 💙

Rayn Boncie & team.. being able to honor our Phoebe girl, multiple times this year during our darkest days, by donating to your important and powerful organization, is something our family will never forget. We love you, we thank you for your hard work, and we look ahead to continuing to support you however we can, in Phoebe’s name💜🧡✨ Maria Tedford Alex Hester
