Letter: Mercy says thanks
April 7, 2017

Dear Editor:

Thank you on behalf of all the children at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls for your extreme generosity in helping us promote our annual March for Kids campaign once again this year through an article in the Gazette.

Please know how invaluable outreach like this is for us. As an organization that depends upon private donations for 99.9% of the resources we need to give children full-time shelter, therapy, and education, we simply have to reach out to new friends to this mission who will walk with our children throughout the year. Because you help us share our story with your loyal readers, we are able to give hope and healing to children who’ve suffered abuse, neglect, or abandonment. And even more, you strengthen the partnerships between this mission and our West Loop neighbors who play so many critical roles in the life of our home.

You have my deepest gratitude and the gratitude of our young people and our coworkers. I pray that God blesses you with joy, love, and peace!

Fr. Scott Donahue
President and CEO
Mercy Home for Boys & Girls
