From The Salvation Army Shelter – Norristown


Hi Amani,


I wanted to let you know that we had a client who was in need of shoes today and thanks to the gift card donated by the Amana Foundation, we were able to purchase a new pair from Target.


He is a gentleman who is in our permanent housing program for homeless men with disabilities.  He has been walking around in shoes that have been falling apart but has no income to get new ones.  He did not want to ask for our help but his case manager Joel felt it was important for us to step in.  Because of the Amana Foundation’s generosity, we were able to get him a new pair of shoes that will be much safer for him and more comfortable.  It is days like these that we feel a great sense of pride for the work that we do and we are reminded that we cannot meet even the most basic needs of our clients without your help.


So I wanted to send you a big THANK YOU (and a virtual hug!).

From T&E Cares


Dear Ibrahim and Nicole,


Many thanks to you and your organization for helping with the Thanksgiving dinners a few weeks ago. I was truly overwhelmed by the abundance of produce you gathered, sorted, and donated on behalf of these families. You went above and beyond for them and we are so grateful to you for your kindness and generosity. We know the families that received the food really appreciated the support. For many it was their biggest meal of the year!


We really appreciate your help and the spirit in which it was given. With the support of caring people like you, we are making a difference in our own backyard. I have attached a donation form to be used for tax purposes if you desire. It can be attached to this letter as well, if you like.


So many thanks again for being part of our “families helping families” community!!
