Thank you for supporting Wood Street Mission in 2008.

10 Dec 2008

Letter to staff from Wood Street Mission Manager Jan O’Connor.

“I am writing to thank you for your generous donation of Food and Toys as well as the monetary donations. Last Christmas we helped over 3,100 children with toys and gifts. This year we are delighted to be able to offer each family a food hamper once again to help over the Christmas period. This will be in addition to their children receiving a new toy, a book and second hand toys to help make their Christmas a happy time.

We have supported families throughout the year with clothing parcels, baby equipment, bedding and Easter Eggs as well as offering a school uniform package at the beginning of the school year. This was the first time we had secured funding to do this.

We have now moved into our renovated premises at 26 Wood Street. These improved facilities offer a far more welcoming environment for families visiting us for help. The families really do appreciate the support they receive. It is on their behalf then that we thank you for your generosity and continued support.”

Jan O’Connor
