Letter of thanks from the Good Shepherd Centre
Dear Fr. Paul and Parishioners,
I want to thank you personally for participating in Good Shepherd Centre’s Christmas food drive.
Your generous participation in the Christmas food drive has helped the Centre fill its pantries, ready to serve more than 260,000 meals and snacks in 2007. Thank you for giving us such a great start to the year.
Your gift of food will help sustain and comfort thousands of individuals who would otherwise go hungry: the homeless and people who live on fixed incomes (seniors, the disabled) who might have to choose between eating and paying the rent.
Thank you for taking the time this holiday season to remember those most in need in our community.
