December Share-the-Plate: Family Promise of WNY
Our partner is Family Promise, a unique homeless shelter for families, including men and teen boys, who are searching for permanent housing. FP provides not just shelter, but connections to supportive services, assistance with apartment deposits, and the chance to rebuild confidence. In the past year, Family Promise helped 45 families, six families at a time with a 97% success rate.
Thanks to all of you who took gift tags for our Family Promise family. Wrapped gifts may be returned to the tree in the sanctuary on Dec. 3 or 10. Be sure to attach a gift tag with the recipient’s name and tag #. We will make sure we have all the gifts on the 10th and then will deliver them on the 16th. If you’d like to help with either of these tasks we could use you. Contact mariaLtesta@gmail.com.
We will gather in loving community, creating a shared vision of compassion and dignity for all,
to radically transform the world in which we live.
