Dear friend of Loaves & Fishes,
A young homeless man came to our Welcome Center recently and asked Chris how much it would cost to have lunch in our dining room. She replied that no one pays for lunch or for any of our survival services here. She said that while you are at Loaves & Fishes, you are our “Guest,” and guests do not pay for hospitality.
This story is true and very touching. I share it with you because it is through your generosity and compassion that Loaves & Fishes can give that answer to a young, homeless man, and that we have the ability to provide that hospitality.
The thousands of people, men, women and children, who have come here daily for more than thirty one years to receive our simple and basic services of food, showers, toilets, personal hygiene items, clean clothing, water, mental health care and a smile are served because of your continued support. You are the heart of the amazing miracle that is Loaves & Fishes and we are deeply grateful.
As we approach the season of Lent and Passover, we ask that you remember with prayers and alms giving your brothers and sisters who come to Loaves & Fishes.
May God bless you and yours always.
Sr. Libby Executive Director
