As the holiday season approaches, I think of the many here in the Southeast Michigan community are hungry and homeless. Families like Sarah’s*.
Sarah and her family were in turmoil. Sarah is a single mother who had been diagnosed with cancer. Scared, alone and afraid she decided to fight… she had to cut hours from work and the financial burden that was bestowed upon them was devastating. She couldn’t keep up with expenses for the basics for her family. She didn’t want to die and she didn’t want to lose her home.
But with your help we were there for Sarah and her family. We helped with rent while she underwent chemotherapy, radiation and finally a double mastectomy. We comforted this family all the way through. We even made a special meal for them for Thanksgiving and helped to provide them with toys and winter clothes for Christmas. This was because of compassionate friends like YOU!
And right now we have an opportunity to do DOUBLE the good this Christmas as a St. Vincent de Paul benefactor is going to match every gift up to $25,000. So, please will you send a gift today to help support our 2016 Christmas Hope Appeal?
Because of YOU, we can change the lives of so many this Christmas season.
Thank you for caring and taking action!
