Cornerstone Cares – Founder’s Reflections
Dear Friends of the Cornerstone,
So many great things have happened this year that allows us to help people in different ways that I'm finding it difficult to know where to start.
First, I will begin by saying, the Cornerstone Foundation would not be in existence today if it were not for people like you. So, I thank all of you volunteers who have spent multiple hours performing multiple tasks to help Cornerstone. Whether it’s volunteering at the shelter, clothing bank etc. soup, kitchen, food cupboard, community center, or to you who spent hours successfully planning fundraising event for the Cornerstone. THANK YOU.
For our cooks who spend hours planning and preparing our meals Thank you. To all of you who help us monetarily Thank you. There is a saying that goes like this "No one has it all together but together we have it all" Thank you again for sharing and caring. You have made a difference.
In September we had a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the opening of our food cupboard.
The cupboard is open on Tuesdays-9:00 a.m.to noon & Saturdays Noon to 2:00 p.m. So far over two hundred families have signed up for help.
Cornerstone has made an arrangement with St. Bernard's Church to operate a shelter called the Clairvaux House. The name was chosen because St. Bernard lived in Clairvaux France. The shelter is for single moms with children. We will be able to house three families at a time. There will be house staff on the premises to ensure that the house rules are followed.
I cannot say enough about our Cornerstone clothing bank Etc. In addition to providing much needed clothing to those in need, I would like to give you an Idea of what Etc. means on the clothing bank sign. This past summer a special event was held to help young women go to their High School prom. There were racks of pretty gowns, shelves of shoes, jewelry & purses. To top it all off they had their hair cut & styled by a professional hairdresser and had their nails done. It was very successful event. Approximately thirty young women were able to go to the prom knowing that they looked beautiful.
Because of the lack of space I cannot elaborate on the happenings at our shelter and soup kitchen. But I can tell you that last year we served fifty four thousand meals and it is growing by the day. The Cornerstone shelter sheltered over five thousand five hundred individuals. We are receiving dozens of calls for space on a daily basis because there are minimal shelters available. It is a heartbreaking situation. Please be assured that we do all that we can to help those who come to us in their time of need.
Please keep us in your Prayer.
