Dec 23Many Thanks in Thank-uary
We are so excited to ring in 2021 with you and for the prospect of sharing a fresh start and new beginnings!
Before we look forward, however, we want to take a moment to reflect on the past year. So many of us were forced to navigate through unexpected challenges and hardships, as individuals, in our communities, and as a nation. Through it all, we saw people unite and the strength of communities rise to help one another. We were overwhelmed by the resilience we saw in Mercy Housing residents as many overcame significant obstacles and we were humbled by the outpouring of support from donors like you!
For the safety of all, the 2020 holiday season looked very different from years past. Although all in-person community celebrations were canceled, we were still able to provide residents a warm holiday meal with socially distanced food deliveries, as well as holiday gifts through our virtual donation drives.
Thanks to YOU, we were able to spread that much needed holiday cheer to Mercy Housing seniors, families, and people with special needs across the Mountain Plains region. You showed up (virtually) with toys, household goods, winter clothing items, holiday treats, and much, much more, and they truly felt the love. Mercy Housing residents are feeling so very grateful.
Rachael is a resident at Aromor Apartments in Denver and was so excited to receive a handmade quilt for the holidays.
“I would like to thank you for the quilts. I chose one and it is beautiful. I can tell by the details that there was a lot of time put into making them. I thank you again for the time and effort it took in getting these gifts together.”
A huge THANK YOU goes out to our corporate and community partners for their unwavering support! Here are just a few: KM Partners, Kentwood Real Estate Group, Aon, Salesforce, Fastly, Teammates Commercial Interiors, Mission Community Church, United Healthcare, Coats for Colorado, Kindness in Action, Cory Elementary Challenge Group, Gilbert Chamber of Commerce, Lift Up Sarpy, Knights of Columbus Council #8844, and AARP.
