Dear Mr. Keller,
On behalf of the parish community of St. Aloysius in Caldwell, please accept my sincere words of thanks for your generous donation of Christmas toys.
During the year, our parish provides assistance in many ways to our families in great need. Quite often, parents are working two and three jobs, just to put food on the table and pay rent. Buying toys is out of the question. After I displayed your toy donations on a large table, I was delighted to call the parents to pick out Christmas gifts for their children. They were thrilled. One mom was in tears at our generosity. I explained it was not my donation, rather, caring people whom you will never meet.
Please know, your generosity was gratefully received and most appreciated by our families and by me. Thank you, once again, for your donation to our parish.
