"On Friday, Feast of the Sacred Heart we received your box of good things.....the Children of the Garden received the SERVICE lunch packs and were happy.....since they live on the sidewalks and vacant lots they were more than happy to receive this food..... We had a wonderful Fiesta as we celebrated also our 5 years of service to the Special Children and the Elderly. You are remembered on a Well Spring of Like Wall that honors friends and benefactors....with the photo of you and your lovely wife that you sent last year....Dave God Bless you and all who contributed the school supplies, the big box of powered milk, and other items so useful to us....thanks for the Staples multipurpose paper."

With the help of local businesses we enjoyed a can sculpture exhibit. All cans were donated to the Johnny Cake Center and the WARM Shelter and the admission collected was used to help pay for shipping of items to troop overseas.
