“Dear First United Methodist Church,
Thank you for your generous donation towards the General Fund program. We wouldn’t be able to do any of our work without the support from our loyal community members like yourself.
As the fall weather emerges, we are warmed by your generosity that allows us to continue serving our guests experiencing homelessness. Our staff spend mornings giving out hot coffee, signing people up for showers, and welcoming our guests in with open arms. Your donations allow us to remain an oasis for our guests and on their behalf, we thank you.
Loaves & Fishes Family”
“As the largest homeless service provider in Sacramento, Loaves & Fishes is a 501(c)(3), charitable, non-profit organization dedicated to providing warm meals, essential survival supplies and services for nearly 1,000 adults and children daily. To keep our services barrier-free, we do not solicit or accept government funds and are supported instead, by the investment of individual and private donations from the greater Sacramento community. In the spirit of radical hospitality modeled after activist and leader of the Catholic Worker Movement, Dorothy Day, we refer to people seeking our services as “guests” creating a space of welcome, respite, and belonging.” (from the website sacloaves.org)
