A Happy Easter wish from a very "special man"

This afternoon while I was at the Wawa near 4 mile circle ,I noticed 2 older boys picking on a man who has Down syndrome.I walked over to the boys and started asking them what was there problem.And I am happy to report a biker joined in .Needless to say when they left the man who had been picked on said"I don't know why people don't like me?I like everybody."The biker guy and I both reassured him they were not nice people.He smiled and wished us a Happy Easter than went back to washing the windows at the Wawa.Evidently he works there.


The Lord suffered and died on the cross for our sins.This is the day that has been set aside in his remembrance.

Message for my sister and our volunteer Peachess

 Peachess since we are always playing phone tag or emaling each other I thought I would send you this official Easter wish on our

Dorothy's deliveries for March

Dorothy delivered to a total of 29 families in one of the poorest sections in Camden.
 With her was her son and his male friend  because the area is so bad.The families did not only receive
clothes for their children but the food that we had been given.We have told Dorothy numerous times not to venture in areas that are not safe.But,she insists these areas are where the help is most needed.We keep her in our prayers when her and her son make these deliveries.
Peachess has delivered to 15 families in March.She has gone to some of the poorest areas in Trenton.Again we have discussed with Peachess about being in unsafe areas.She reassure us she is not alone she is with the Lord.Anyone who knows Peachess knows she goes where she feels needed.
I delivered in March to 6 families in Ocean County not counting drop offs to several churches or the Easter baskets we are dropping off today.I spent a good time of March visiting Fr John in the hospitol.
Debbie delivered items to 4 families in Ocean County in between picking up food & clothes donations.
Total-54 families for month of March

 This is a picture of Kathleen reading a speech that FR John had helped her with .
As soon as Kathleen learned FR John came home from the hospital she decided to surprise him with a dinner,rose and a get well card that had same color roses on it.You could tell she put alot of thought into this.Fr John was so thrilled that she did this for him.He probably felt like he was on a picnic,lol

Dont worry the food was put on a nice plate................

Part of an email we recieved

Yeah,we found a home for 3 cockateils

This cage looks identical to the cage they are in.

The grey male bird is Sam he has attitude'
The yellow female next to him is Sunny she is scared of everything and hisses alot.Have to talk very low to her.
Last yellow female is Baby doll she use to chirp when her owner talked to her.
They all use to sit on their owners shoulder when he watched TV.
How we got involved-Our volunteer Jack who died in
Dec 2012 left behind 3 cocktails.He had Sam for 14 yrs and the other 2 for 8yrs.Because we knew they had bonded after all the years together,we wanted to find someone who would take all 3 of them if possible.After checking out a bird Rescue in Freehold and hearing alot of negative things about it,we called Popcorn Park and a few other Rescues hoping someone could direct us to a good home for them.Finally after months of talking and searching we have been blessed with a woman in Monmouth County who will take all 3 together.They will be arriving at her house tomorrow.Our volunteer Debbie will be taking them there for us.Normally we do not get involved with situations involving animals.But,we felt it was the least we could do for our volunteer Jack who offered his time and shed to our organization when needed.And of course,the birds were already traumatized from loosing the one and only person they knew for yrs.So it is with much appreciation we would like to say THANKS to KATE in Neptune NJ for rescuing these birds.
