Thank you from Catholic Charities to Steubenville St. Louis Mid-America


This is from a letter sent by the Executive Director of Catholic Charities for the generous donations by all those who attended the Steubenville St. Louis Mid-America Conferences.

What a welcome surprise to be chosen to receive the very generous donation from this year's Steubenville Mid-America Conference!  We are very grateful for the support and the caring of the Catholic youth who attended the conference.  This donation will be used to help those still struggling in Joplin after the May 2011 tornado destroyed their homes and made their lives so difficult.

When families are living paycheck to paycheck and then lose their homes, their cars and their jobs, it is a long, difficult road to recovery.  Our case managers continue to meet with survivors guiding them in the steps necessary to find affordable housing and put their lives back in order.  Our construction manager coordinates volunteers and skilled laborers in repair and rebuild projects, working to get families back into their homes or a new affordable home as soon as possible.  Our program is called Rebuilding Homes/ Rebuilding Lives, and your donation helps to make all this work possible.

On behalf of our staff and all those we serve, please accept our heartfelt gratitude for your support.  May God bless you and the youth of the Steubenville Conference!
