Special Recognition - To the
many volunteers who continue to treat our clients very generously and help
them believe they are special too.
Many groups supplied needed food
for our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners and party. Bloomfield
Congregational, First Baptist, First Church West Hartford, Immanuel
Congregational, Kol Haverim, NCJW, Trinity Episcopal Church, Westminster
Presbyterian, and United Methodist all sent food for our Christmas dinner.
Jr. League provided the volunteering needs for the Christmas dinner and
party. Avon Congregational once again provided the entire Christmas meal.
All the food was truly needed, as we were crowded! Simsbury High School's
Cabaret Singers sang throughout the Christmas meal which was very special
with their beautiful voices. These high school students also raised almost
$7,000 through singing at other venues and brought this wonderful donation
to us! Administrative Staff from Connecticut Community Technical Colleges
gifted our children and several groups of Prudential employees and a group
of CIGNA employees made hundreds of sandwiches for clients. All Saints
Orthodox Church, Bugbee Boy Scouts, and the Greek Orthodox Church all made
hundreds of bag lunches for clients to take for supper. Our "Cookie Lady"
Carol Plander made absolutely wonderful treats for all clients beautifully
packaged in holiday bags. Kingswood-Oxford also had their annual food
collection and were able to donate boxes and boxes of food, as well as 12
turkeys at Thanksgiving. Many individuals made wonderful caring special
efforts. Loaves and Fishes is blessed with your caring and generous
attitudes. We greatly thank you.
Without all of your help we would
not have been able to provide such a wonderful holiday meal for the clients.
The meal was well received and appreciated by all.
= We would like to thank ALL of you for joining us again for another year.
Without you, our volunteers, and your dedication to service, we would not be
able to continue serving the residents of Asylum Hill. Thank you again! All
of us at Loaves and Fishes look forward to another year of working with each
of you in our wonderful facility. You are the best volunteers anyone could
