Thanks to the Parish of St. Jude for another successful back-to-school drive. Once again the members of St. Jude have opened their hearts and given with love to the children of West Dallas at St. Cecilia and Santa Clara Community Center. We also share with three of our local schools that are in need of extra supplies this year we had a few extra families in crisis that were also helped due to your generosity and love.

What a great gift you have given, not just to the children, but also to the parents knowing that the children will have what they need as they go back to school. For the children it means that they don’t have to feel embarrassed and self-conscious about not having what they are expected to bring. This should make for a good year for everyone, with learning and growth. Again thank you to the members of St. Jude for opening their hearts, in these uncertain times, you have been very generous. Each year the need seems to be greater than the year before, but St. Jude has become a shining star for the underserved. May God bless you and your families.
Thank you for your generosity!

Note: We can never express how grateful we are for your wonderful parishioners at St. Jude and what they have done for our clients. You have given a great opportunity to the youngsters and a sense of relief to the parents that struggle so hard to provide for their children.
