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, CB Richard Ellis, First Baptist, First Church West Hartford, Immanuel Congregational, Kol Haverim, NCJW, Trinity Episcopal Church, and Westminster Presbyterian all sent food for our Christmas dinner. AHCC Men (plus some
"extras"!) provided the volunteering needs for the Christmas dinner and party. Avon Congregational once again provided the entire Christmas meal. This year, Max Cares Foundation also donated hams, vegetables for side dishes and delicious cakes for dessert as part of their foundation's mission to support local feeding programs; a wonderful addition to our volunteers' efforts. 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 over $3,350 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 St. James Episcopal made hundreds of sandwiches for clients. All Saints Orthodox Church and Bugbee Cub Scouts made hundreds of bag lunches for clients to take for supper. A family from All Saints Church also made
"Blessing bags" containing sock, gloves, etc. which we handed out to all adults who ate with us
- a truly special Christmas offering. 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 at Thanksgiving.
Many individuals made wonderful caring special efforts. Loaves and Fishes is blessed with your caring and generous attitudes. We greatly thank you.
- 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 hope for!
