Charity is still healthy because of you!
For over 125 years, the Kurn Hattin Homes for Children has stood the test of time because of donors like you! That test includes two world wars, the Spanish Flu, the Great Depression and, as of this writing, the Coronavirus pandemic which has brought most of the world to a halt.
The St. Nicholas Project needs you now more than ever to help the boys and girls at the children's home. We are doing an emergency appeal to raise donations to obtain food cards for the children who have been temporarily relocated to their families of origin during the pandemic. This relocation has placed a burden upon families already struggling financially, so I am calling upon your help.
One of the blessings of Kurn Hattin is that the children receive three meals a day. For many of them away from the children's home, that is no longer a guaranteed reality. Would you please donate a minimum amount of $50? That will enable the Kurn Hattin staff to purchase food cards for those families who are most in need and co-ordinate it with stores that are in their particular town.
Children going hungry is one of the saddest effects of poverty. I know you don't want that to happen to these children, too, because you can prevent it!
Would you please donate today? You can make an on-line donation through the Kurn Hattin Homes website. Just go to the homepage of this blog to the Donate icon which takes you to the Kurn Hattin website. Then, on the top far right, click on the yellow donate page and follow the prompts. Be sure in the Note section to indicate that this donation is for the: SNP food cards.
If you want to send a check, please mail it to me at: Fr. Lance W. Harlow 113 Elmwood Avenue Burlington, VT 05401 and I will forward it to Kurn Hattin Homes for Children.
While many things have come to a standstill during the pandemic and stay-at-home orders, charity never stops! You're keeping it alive.
God bless you for remembering the boys and girls at the Kurn Hattin Homes for Children.
