JUNE APPEAL - extended into July
The June Appeal has been mailed out! As with so many businesses, nonprofits and religious communities the pandemic has hurt us as well. Some of have also taken hits personally, in our employment and from our savings.
We have been fortunate to have a wonderful base of supporters. We are especially grateful for those families who have contributed $1000 or more.
This year we need everyone’s gift more than ever.
Usually, we send an Annual Report with the mailing. This time, in order to save on the mailing costs, our Annual Report can be viewed here on our website. In spite of the pandemic we continue to serve our community as always.
Do not hesitate to contact me with a particular need or a suggestion.
Be safe, be well,
