Looking back at 2016 brings a big smile to my face!
A smile of accomplishment because we were able to complete the Men's Dining Room, and install a canopy that stretches over 75 ft. long to protect our men from the elements as they gather to receive their meals. We continued to serve our women and children in their Center, and we were able to increase the number of nursing students that assist weekly at our Clinic.
A smile of joy because our men now have a warm and comfortable place to enjoy their meals. To hear the men express their appreciation lifts my heart.
A smile of gratitude for the outpouring of kindness from so many of you. You are responsible for all these accomplishments at St. John's. Without you, we would not be able to offer a place of comfort and love to the many who come to our door, even if it is only for a little while.
In this new 2017, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your donation. May the Lord bless you always.
