Dear Donors and Supporters:
The challenges of living day to day continue to increase for all of us. Stresses we never could have imagined before — except, perhaps, in a well-written sci-fi novel — have crowded in all around us. I hope that each person reading this is as well as can be in these trying times. We all have to be able to say when we’re not doing well, and we have to know that it’s okay to experience the emotional roller coaster rides this world keeps throwing at us.
We are focused, now more than ever, on helping those we can, and so we’ve been looking at opportunities here in our own community. In the coming months, we will be helping to provide shelter for homeless and impoverished elders here on the Olympic Peninsula, and preparing dinners and brown-bag lunches for elders who stay at local homeless shelters.
Please stay tuned for opportunities to help us support these folks. None of us expects to be living out of homeless shelters or living out of our cars when we’re 80 years old. A little help goes a long way to improving lives for the elders who find themselves in that position.
As Mother Theresa said, “Never worry about the numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.”
Thank you, as always, for your support and for putting your trust in us.
