Thank You For Your Support
Over the past two months we have told you stories of the services and activities at our Home and shown you the (masked) faces of many of the special folks who work at Queen of Peace and make it the special place it is. We tried to adequately thank these folks for their love for our Residents and Sisters and their steadfast dedication to our Mission. We have also been open with you about our increased expenses as a result of the pandemic.
Now is the time to thank you, our partners. Without you, none of what we do at Queen of Peace would be possible. You have generously shared your time, talents and treasures with us to care for our dear Residents with the dignity and respect they so deserve. You pray for us as we pray for you and on many occasions, we pray together virtually! You understand the power of prayer and willingly join us in asking for God’s Protection and Providence.
We have told you of our extensive needs that have arisen from the pandemic and you have responded as partners in our Mission. You have not only made cash donations, which is always critical, but you have provided in kind donations of PPE, food supplies, dry goods, bakery supplies, cleaning and disinfectant supplies. The Knights of Columbus and Order of Malta made substantial in-kind donations to us. Many individuals, like Fr. Lou Millazzo, pictured here, of the Queensboro Chapter of Unico National, who stopped by last week to drop off a truckload of most needed in-kind donations of food and dry goods. You even baked cookies for our Residents and staff!
Our Catholic High School student partners have written uplifting letters of friendship and encouragement to our Residents, Sisters and staff. Talk about putting a smile on someone’s face behind a mask!
We asked for donations of $350.00 to feed our staff once a week and you responded graciously and generously and you continue to do so! Many of you offered suggestions as to public funding opportunities which we could apply for and for which in many cases, we did.
As we continue to deal with the pandemic, we are confident that with your continued prayers and support, we will be able to continue to care for our dear Residents with the dignity and respect they so deserve.
