Our Heartfelt THANKS – a THOUSAND times over!
Streets Alive Mission is celebrating a ‘Day of a Thousand Thanks’ to show our heartfelt appreciation to all of the Lethbridge community, businesses and churches who support and volunteer with us, so we can help people in need.
Marie McLennan, Associate Director of Philanthropy says,
“Streets Alive Mission receives no government funding to operate its multiple programs. Therefore, Streets Alive Mission relies 100% on donations from individuals. Today, Streets Alive is celebrating ‘A Day of 1000 Thanks’ as a way of saying thank you to our supporters who have blessed us and have always helped us with the ever-growing need in our community to battle poverty!”
- For all the jackets, jeans and shoes you have donated… THANKS!
- For all the groceries and donations of food… THANKS!
- For all the time and energy our volunteers have given… THANKS!
- For all the monetary gifts and prayers that help sustain Streets Alive Mission… THANKS!
Streets Alive Mission just wants to say, “Because you give… THANKS!”
We are so Thankful for YOU!
