Catholic Charities, Inc.
November 10, 2010

One year ago my 3 year old son and I began serving meals at the St. Anthony's Family Shelter. We went two Tuesday's every month and assisted the kitchen cook. My son was 8 wks old when his father was in a tragic accident leaving us as a single parent family. We were blessed to be provided all of our needs over the next few years and I wanted to teach my son what it meant to give back. Our experience serving at the Shelter far exceeded what I ever imagined. We were a testimony to other single mom's there and gained so much personally by sharing the experience together as a mother and son. My son is 4 now and still recalls serving at the shelter. When I asked him the other day what serving meant to him, he responded, " I like serving at the shelter to help others." It's an experience to reach out to others in ways we may never fully realize the impact it will leave. Catholic Charities provides resources to families and individuals that need hope, love and grace.
