A Message From Our President
Jay is disabled and works limited hours. He got an apartment for the first time on his own and was reunited with his six-year-old daughter. Mission of Deeds gave them dressers, a nightstand, a kitchen set, a bookcase, linens, kitchenware and a bag of children’s books.
A victim of domestic violence, Yvette is raising three children on her own, one of them a newborn. She got a new apartment, which we filled with a bed for her, a bunk bed, a crib, bureaus, a dining set, lots of living room furniture, along with lamps, artwork, linens for the beds and much kitchenware.
John, a veteran, had become homeless with his wife and three children due to service connected issues. The family received housing and Mission of Deeds sprang into action. Our volunteers filled our truck, and their apartment, with beds, bureaus, a kitchen set, two desks, a sofa, armchairs, end and coffee tables, lamps, linens, all sorts of kitchen items and much more.
These are three of more than a thousand households we helped in the last year. The stories are all different, but also the same—people are struggling and need a helping hand.
We want to tell you about one more family. Following the passing of her husband, the Mom raised four young children on her own. The oldest was a ten-year-old boy. The Mom scrubbed floors for income, but the family also needed government assistance, as well as help from private charities at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Yet this family broke the cycle of poverty. The ten-year-old boy grew up to become highly successful in business, married and raised a family, all of whom have achieved successes of their own. Later in life, this boy, then a man almost age 70, started his own charity to help people in need.
This, of course, is the story of Tony Triglione and the charity is Mission of Deeds. Whether any of our clients will achieve Tony’s success is, of course, unknown, yet the more people we help, the greater becomes the chance that someone will—or has already begun to do so.
Our aim, as was Tony’s, is to give everyone we help a boost to make their lives a little brighter, by giving them the things they need to turn an empty apartment into a vibrant home. What they do from that point is up to them, but it is indisputable that a proper home can only increase the chances of a stable, happy life.
Every time we help a family, it is solely because you have given us the ability to do so. We are grateful that you let us bring your spirit of generosity into the lives of those in need every day. We cannot thank you enough.
We wish you the best of health and happiness during this holiday season and throughout the New Year.
