I’m sure you’ve heard the expression, “March roars in like a lion…” Nothing could be more true this year as many states in the Northeast were hit by the Nor’easter this past weekend. And today Winter Storm Quinn is impacting the states where most of our Good Counsel homes are located.
Thankfully, none of our homes were damaged by this weekend’s storm. However, I still need help paying our winter heating bills, and this cold weather is a good reminder for us to share this important appeal.
Just today, a homeless, pregnant mother was brought in as an emergency to the Staten Island House. She slept in Times Square last night. I don’t know too much about her yet except that she is a victim of domestic violence and her baby is due in September. She called the House Manager just as she got off the bus to ask for directions and she said she couldn’t even see because of the heavy snow. She’s now safe and warm in our home.
If you’re looking for a wonderful way to give alms this Lenten season, then please consider helping Good Counsel offset its winter heating costs with a donation. Our moms and babies will be extremely grateful for any gift you can send!
Thank you again for your love, concern and support for our moms and babies. On behalf of them and all of Good Counsel, I wish you a Holy Lenten season.GIVE NOW
