A Festive Luncheon – by Catherine Donohoe, President
Amongst pandemonium of this season of preparation—with the decorating, the card writing, the baking, the parties, and more—it was delightful to take a break to attend the annual Bishop’s Luncheon at Russo‘s on the Bay. We were happy to catch up with many of our supporters, especially pastors from local churches who have supported our work at Bridge for many years.
We were afforded the opportunity to elaborate on some of our recent activities at Bridge. They were thrilled to hear that Santa Clause would be coming for a visit during a Material Assistance day this month, complements of St. Ann’s Knights of Columbus. The Knights have also included us in their coat and toy drive this year, for which we are abundantly thankful. We were also grateful to be able to introduce ourselves to some new supporters.
Our hope for you all during this busy season is that you take the time to enjoy the warmth and love that comes this time of year and know that, here at Bridge, we are spreading that love even further to our moms and children with your support.
Wishing you all our best for a joyous Christmas and holiday season and a very happy New Year.
Everybody loves a baby. We were gifted to see a presentation given to us by students from the Immaculate Conception Academy in Astoria.
