Year-end campaign a success

St. Patrick Center’s year-end campaign was a success and exceeded our expectations. More than 1,700 people answered the call for support. Our generous donors made an impact in the lives of people facing situations that most of us can only imagine. Thank you very much for these funds that will help us end homelessness for more individuals and families.

In addition, we celebrate these year-end successes that helped our clients improve their lives and made our community better:

— Through our Christmas Wishes sponsorship program in December, we provided Christmas gifts to 425 clients and their families.

— Through the Trevisano Teddy Bear Christmas Land light display in Crestwood, the Trevisanos raised $7,600 to help end homelessness in our community.

— Through our Give Thanks Thanksgiving distribution program in November, we provided traditional Thanksgiving meals to 252 clients and their families.

— Hundreds of people delivered coats, shoes, blankets and other donations to make the season more comfortable and warm.

— Hundreds of volunteers helped with Give Thanks, Christmas Wishes and Trevisano lights, plus delivering and serving meals at St. Patrick Center.
