Seniors Say "Thank You"

Dearest Humanitarian and Secret Pal, Your thoughtfulness meant so much. There aren’t enough words to truly explain all I have within my heart for all of you. I’ve encountered many illnesses since last Christmas and am healing now from a quadruple heart by pass. If not for your warm and wonderful generosity, I don’t know I would be healing at all, as I have no one close enough to have stayed to help me.
I live alone with the love of my life — my cat baby who is more spoiled than a child. His name is “Baby” and he is about 10 and reacts to everything like a human being. My children are distant and into their own lives so I’ve been getting by with your wonderful donations and secret pal gifts. It shows I am not alone. 

The healing process is long and difficult and it is wonderful to know you are there for me. Like the new glasses your gift of life just sponsored me. What words could ever be adequate. My home nurse and caregiver have been helping me though all of this. Think how wonderful it is to feel so alone and be surprised with wonderful soaps, lotions, beauty care articles, and all the things you’ve supplied would have to come out of my small check. I get $10 in food stamps and it doesn’t supply the fruits & etc. I require for my heart and diabetic diet requires. 

I love all of you for all of it. You are a loving, caring, and giving organization and God blessed me when he gave you to me. Thank all of you for your help and thoughtfulness! I shall always hold you close to heart. Don’t know how I would afford household and personal items without you and I’m anxious as a kid with your wonderful fruits, means, vegetables, toiletries, laundry products, and await each delivery with excitement and gratitude. God bless you, one and all for your generosity; plus the excitement of special gifts from my secret pal. Please relay my thankfulness. Thank you. Sincerely, Marlene D.

I can’t thank you enough for all the wonderful things you send me. Before Humanitarian Service, I hadn’t been able to go purchase anything for myself since my husband died in 2000. Just not enough money. If I had a few pennies left, Melissa (my granddaughter) needed something. Now with all the beautiful things you send I have a nice wardrobe. Thank you so very much. I know I sometimes forget to tell you how much I appreciate it but I’m not much of a letter writer. My hand cramps a lot and it hurts to write. But I do want you to know how much I love all the things you send and its been a godsend to have you in my love. Love, Mae V.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you so much for the generous gift of groceries you delivered Saturday. It was totally overwhelming and really meant a lot to me. I shared some of it with a friend who had been living on oatmeal for 3 days. I’m still overwhelmed at how much food I have in my cabinets, refrigerator and freezer. Thanks again for all your help. Sincerely, Beth

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just a few lines to let you know how much I appreciate the help you have given me. I got my glasses (from Lenscrafters' Gift of Sight Program) today. I will never be able to thank you and my secret pal enough. You are a very good friend. You are there when I need you most. Thank you so very much. Your friend always, Beverly C.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Humanitarian Project, I want to thank you all (belatedly) for all the gifts, food, and everything you have provided me with the past few years. Mostly, I want to thank those people who carried those heavy, heavy boxes to our apartments. Any point from parking to any of our apartments is a long, long hike. I really don’t know how you all have managed! It has been great to have the food supplies to fall back on especially in our recent cold weather! I also want to thank my delivery drivers and their extras. Everything has been used and much appreciated. Thanks again. Fondly, Peggy E.  PS - Also the Christmas watch has been used often already.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just a note to thank you! Your generosity was so overwhelming I was speechless the morning of delivery. Everything, everything was just wonderful! Bless you! Wanda

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Friends, I cannot let this opportunity go by without telling you what a difference you make in people’s lives like mine. I appreciate your kindness and generosity. Love you, Sara R.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Friends, Thank you so much just for being there. Like so many times I used to not know where I was going to get my next meal. Thank you for the food and everything else. Like I always say you are my angels. Because of you when Christmas comes I get things that I so badly need. I was not used to presents until you came along. Thanks my angel. Beverly C.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Words cannot express our appreciation for your kindness. It helps for us to stay in our home during these senior years. Stewart and Grace

Thank you for all the food items. I sure do appreciate them. It is fun to go thru the bags and boxes and discover all the good things. Jessie

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you all so much for giving me Christmas every month! Grace

I’d like to share with each of you my heartfelt appreciation for the loving support you’ve shown me. These last several months could have really been a dismal time for me without the warmth of your friendship and confidence. I hope that the coming year finds even greater support for your loving work. Pam

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just to let you know what a fantastic job you are accomplishing for other human beings. Indirectly, you have saved three suicidal men in my building that I have been able to serve hot meals to. We eat together and have many positive telephone conversations (since I have no automobile). Bless you, bless you, Cathe

------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is such a blessing to have such wonderful friends and I feel so grateful for the food each month. I just finished a tangerine you sent me and it was so sweet and good. I love the pears you sent, too.  You are all such special people at the Senior Project. You are all such beautiful people. The people are so gracious and cheerful I love you all. P.S. I love the letters from the youngsters. I read every single one. Doris

------------------------------------------------------------------------

You all have been wonderful and good to me. I have appreciated all you have done for me. Thank you to all my friends. Keep up the good work. Someday I will be out there helping you all too. I will be 89 years old this month. Keep well and strong. Rosemary

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you so much for the food. It helps a lot during the month. Theresa

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for everything . . . decaf coffee, mouthwash, dandruff shampoo, Tylenol, eye drops. May you all have many stars in your crown. Harold

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks is a little word that can’t express how grateful I am you have helped me these many years. I am overjoyed. Annie

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for all the wonderful things you do thru the year. The monthly food, the wonderful gifts at Christmas. Thank you for the cards and love. Thank you over and over again. Florence

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I would like to thank you and all you nice people for all you have been doing for me. I do not know how to thank you nice people. Rose

------------------------------------------------------------------------

My mother asked me to write you this letter to thank you. Your generosity has touched her greatly. My mother is not physically capable of doing many things that she used to. Thank you for your kindness and your thoughtfulness. Helen’s daughter

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I want to thank you and all who helped for the wonderful variety of food that I received this month. I was overwhelmed! When I hear people talking about the problems and selfishness in our country, I think of all the caring, generous people that are a part of this Senior Citizen Project. My heart is so full, and I just hope that some day I can do as much for others that find it hard to manage. Grace

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks to all my friends. I know there are a lot of you who work behind the lines and God bless you all. Without your help this type of program would not be possible. You give so generously of your time and talents. Roberta

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just wanted thank you for Robert for such a nice "goodie" box. He was in need of everything placed in the box. You people have sure helped him a lot. It’s nice to know in our world, that there are such people as yourselves. Please give [our delivery driver] a special hug. She makes our world a little better. Robert’s brother, for Robert

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks a million! I am very fortunate and thankful to have friends like you. Annie

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi to all the Gang: all of the groceries I receive each month are greatly appreciated. You don’t know what this means to me. And thanks to each and everyone of you for the neat gifts. All of you bring a lot of joy into my life. The people that deliver things to me are wonderful, so thanks to them too. Lorraine

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I get food once a month from all of you. Thank you! As for food it is very wonderful. Eve

------------------------------------------------------------------------

It’s unbelievable! It’s really a miracle! To have a prayer and a wish fulfilled that our rental deficit to the tune of $1,000 has been paid thru your "humanitarian" team’s efforts. There’s always an angel ready to rescue anybody in distress for a very worthwhile cause. Thanks to you and your team, as well as to our unknown benefactor. Please extend to him/her our family’s heartfelt gratitude, for a few indeed would know what you have done but Somebody up there would say "whatever you have done to the least of your brethren you have done it to Me." Thanks for the foods, etc. too. Ismael and Ninfa

------------------------------------------------------------------------

To all of you. From you to us is always Thanksgiving. You come to our home with many things and you are with us, when we need you with your warm hearts and the smile on your face. You make the impossible, possible. Pat and Jimmy

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I like to thank all my beautiful friends for all the gifts you been sending. I just can’t thank you. Bless you, bless you from my heart. I’m very grateful to have new friends like you. Rose

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am writing to thank you for all the lovely, generous, caring people on your staff and everyone connected with your organization. Every has been so kind, loving and caring. I can’t say enough about your organization. Without you I could not have made it this far. With people like you the world is a better place. Roberta

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I can never thank you all for everything you have been doing for me. I Pray all the time for all you do for senior citizens. And to have everything delivered to my door. God bless the wonderful man who delivers my food right to the door. Sincerely yours, Rose

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just a little note to say thank you for all the wonderful food that’s sent to me every month. You must know how much it helps, (when your living on a limited income, every little helps). I want to thank all of you again, and God bless and take care of all of you. I hope you don’t mind me writing to you, but you fill my heart with joy. Florence

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Friends, You make it possible for us to stay in our home. Thank you for the many nice things throughout the year. Grace and Stewert

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank all of you for thinking about me and for being so kind and also for all your hard work. Santo

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you so much for the great delivery of groceries every month. It is really a big help. I was really surprised to receive so many extras each month. You do a terrific job and bring happiness to many.  Evelyn

------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can be assured that all the food has been put to good use. Please tell each and all how much your services are appreciated. Marge

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wishing you all the very best and to thank you for all the help you have given me. Hope you can read this letter as I’m blind in one eye and the other is bad. All my love, Rose

------------------------------------------------------------------------
I want to tell you thanks a lot for all the food. It helps me a lot. I’m not to good. I can’t get out of bed no more. You have been a God send to me. I’m not too good in walking. I’ll be 90 yrs old. It is just a matter of time. Everything is fine: food fruit and all the rest. Thank you all. Thank you. Thelma

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank all of you for your work, but more for your thoughtfulness. You made me so happy. Each month I am surprised! It also makes me happy to know there are people with such goodness in today’s world. You’re all in my prayers. Thanks again. Betty

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am positively grateful to you people, one and all, for all the help you’ve been to me. My health is bad at times. I keep going. Don’t see kids to often, try to manage myself. It’s just a god sent for people like you to help out when we get older. Taking so many pills. Can’t get out too much. Do walk around complex sometimes for exercise. I’ve been pretty sick. Bad, bad 3 weeks. God bless all of you. June

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I sure do appreciate my birthday card. None of my children even sent one or called. I thank you for all your help. June

------------------------------------------------------------------------

We thank you very much all of you. You give us the mind relaxation with all the foods and the fresh fruits and vegetables. We love you.  Pat and Jimmy

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you for all the goodies. I sure was overwhelmed at all the things I received. Thanks just don’t seem to be enough. Wish I could do more. I am looking out the window and it is still snowing. Glad I don’t have to go out. Bless you! Hope all good things can come your way. Love, Jessie

------------------------------------------------------------------------

You gave me a wonderful Christmas. Without your generosity and loving kindness it would have been bleak. The silverware caused much excitement. I simply couldn’t believe the package was for me. I used all pieces and enjoyed every mouthful. I spent the vouchers on medicine and a much desired mattress pad. Now I leap out of bed in the morning like an eighteen year old instead of an aching Methuselah! So very grateful to you for making this possible for me. I think of you as my family. Cathe

------------------------------------------------------------------------

You make my holidays the best ever. Larraine

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I hope you can read my shaky handwriting. I just wanted to say thank you to each and every one of you for the wonderful gifts and kind wishes sent. Your continued thoughtfulness and generosity mean more to me than you will ever know!! You folks are something else!! Helen

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you for everything you have given me. For the food, misc. items for all those who have deliver and drop off stuff for the cards, money, gift certificates, and everything you have done for me. I really truly appreciate your love and kindness. PS Thank all the young people who made cards for me and sent them to me. I really love each and every one. They are just beautiful. Minnie

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you so much for the food and the hand-knitted throw. It keeps my arthritic body nice and warm. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for remembering me during this season of the year. Evelyn

------------------------------------------------------------------------

To everybody at the Humanitarian. I’m writing to say thanks very much. I had a wonderful Christmas this year. The best I had in my 85 years! Thanks, thanks for everything. Elizabeth

------------------------------------------------------------------------

We thank you for your gifts and love. It made our holiday extra great. It’s a special treat to have so many folks think of us because we pretty much are house bound at this time. Stewert and Grace

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for all the wonderful gifts you sent us. If you could only see our faces every time we opened something. We had tears in our eyes and said, ‘These people really care for us.’ Thank you so much. Martha and Nancy

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for the best Christmas ever! You really did it! I was so overwhelmed with so many beautiful gifts and so much food – box after box with sweaters, booties, lamps, and boots – I don’t know how someone picked out a pair that fit and I like! I’m working on the 2000 piece puzzles. I might get it done by summer. Oh yes, chocolates . . . mmmm!!! You are the best people! You will be rewarded abundantly. Thank you again. Betty

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Being on such a tight budget after rent and bills, I find I don’t have enough cash for other needs. My medicine is quite expensive. I use every product I get. Thank you for my white walking shoes. God bless you all, I love you and all your helpers. Margaret

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am so grateful and thankful for all you have done for me and given me this year. The blessings of the Lord be upon you all. Mrs. Minnie C.
