SECOND COLLECTION ~ THIS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15 & 16
HELP FEED 2,200 HUNGRY FAMILIES ON THANKSGIVING DAY
THROUGH THE BYRON SAUNDERS FOUNDATION.
$25.00 WILL PROVIDE A THANKSGIVING MEAL FOR A FAMILY OF FOUR!
The Byron Saunders foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides Thanksgiving meals to needy families in Franklin County and other counties in Central Ohio. Since the first year of its inception in 1997, the project has grown tremendously with the help of many volunteers. For the past several years, the Foundation has provided Thanksgiving meals to approximately 2,200 needy families. The food is distributed directly to individuals and also through schools, churches, and charitable organizations already assisting the less fortunate in the area. In this way, the Foundation serves the poor with dignity and ensures the most appropriate use of the donor funds and food
We are grateful for all the individuals, as well as groups who have contributed in a variety of ways to make the “One Meal At A Time” project successful. They have made a difference in many families’ lives by providing encouragement, hope and food. Our ministry reflects God’s unconditional love and embraces all people regardless of race, status, or creed. We believe that we can best serve God by being of assistance to those in greatest need. Finally, we ask for your prayers to guide us and maintain the purity of our mission.
Make your checks payable to Saint Joseph Cathedral or Holy Cross Church and in the “memo” section of the check write “Byron Saunders Foundation.” Place your check (or cash donation) in the second collection during Mass next weekend. We will collect all donations and write a collective check from Saint Joseph Cathedral and Holy Cross Church. You can also make on-line donations using your credit card by visiting their web site (listed below). Thank you for helping feed people on Thanksgiving Day!
