A THANK YOU LETTER TO ST. ALOYSIUS PARISH
FROM CATHOLIC CHARITIES & NEW COVENANT CENTER

Hi Father Rob, Lisa, and Chris-

Thank you all for your help and support on Saturday’s Food Drive. It was a very successful and uplifting event and we really appreciate all your efforts! Below is a thank you quote for your parishioners that Chris suggested you might put online on your website!

On behalf of New Covenant Center and Catholic Charities we would like to extend our sincere thanks to Fr Rob Kinnally and the parishioners of St Aloysius Church for your extraordinary generosity in supporting the New Covenant Center Food Drive on Saturday April 4th. Many thanks also to Lisa Koslo and Chris Otis who helped organize the event as well as members of the Knights of Columbus for directing traffic. The blessing of parishioners in their cars by Fr David Roman and Fr Rob (at a safe distance!) was also a highlight of the day. While we don’t have an exact count we believe we collected over 300 bags and boxes and likely over 2000 individual much needed items for our Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry. Words cannot describe how grateful we are for your generosity! Demand for our food resources has skyrocketed since the COVID-19 crisis began. Last year at this time on a normal day New Covenant Center would serve 175-200 meals per day. In the past 2-3 weeks we have been serving anywhere from 450-750 meals on any given day at our Stamford location as well as providing additional meals to clients of other Stamford non-profits including Inspirica, Pacific House, and Building One Community. Many of our clients are hourly workers who have recently lost jobs, homeless, or mentally ill and are struggling to make ends meet. Please know how grateful we are for your help and support! Thank you for helping us treat every human being, especially those who are most vulnerable, with the love and respect they deserve!
