I am reaching out to you pleading for help!
As you may know, we are building a new “park”—Friendship Park. The park is a safe and welcoming environment where our homeless men and women may come during the day to rest, use our bathrooms and access services to help them get off the streets.
I am in need of an extra $200,000 to help pay for the “Memorial Wall” which will be at the center of the new park.
I cannot express adequately how important this Memorial Wall is!
The tragedy of being homeless often leads to dying on the streets. Since 1990, we have been doing Memorial Services for our guests who have passed away--usually from illness, violence, or being exposed to harsh weather conditions.
To this day, we have done 556 Memorial Services. We try to find family and friends to join us for the send off; but, as you can imagine, there is often no one there for them.
We become their only family and friends.
We then engrave their name on the Memorial Wall to be prayed for and honored daily at Loaves & Fishes.
Please reflect deeply with me and reach out the best you can to help us meet the $200,000 goal.
God Bless Always!
Sister Libby Fernandez Executive Director Loaves & Fishes
