                                 January Highlights

The January newsletter highlights the benchmark year we had in 2023.  Thnak you all so much for your support. We raised a record $465,000 and spent a record $437,000 on supporting the kids.

Through your generosity, we are supporting 770 children, including 28 infants and 15 disabled. The 8 different locations are managed by a staff of 24 nuns and 59 lay helpers.

                                              HELP WANTED

Do you have 10-15 hours per month to help us keep in contact with our donors. We send out 1,200 thank you notes and 1,000 newsletters per year.  We believe thanking our donors and keeping everybdy current is an essential task.  If you can help and dedicate part of your month it would be a great help to us and the kids.
