"Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can’t see." —The Polar Express

For nineteen long months, hundreds of our neighbors have been impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.  We continue to provide the most basic needs for our neighbors in need from emergency financial assistance, to infant/toddler/school supplies, to food on the table, and now we will conclude the year with our holiday programs.   Unfortunately, these needs aren't going away anytime soon and have been exaggerated by the domino effect of the pandemic.  

The St. MAM Board of Directors and Staff want to express a heartfelt thank you to all who donated through the Community Foundation's "Give for Good Louisville" campaign (in September) raising $5400.  In addition, our 7th annual Golf Classic netted a RECORD $25,000!   Thanks to each of you who continue to donate to and/or serve St. MAM.  COVID-19 has no doubt impacted your life in ways we never considered as it has our clients, volunteers, and St. MAM staff.

We need YOUR support now more than ever through your gifts of time, talent, and treasure.  Due to the elevated needs, our financial resources are depleted for those needing housing and utility assistance.  Our "Pulling Together" Auction/Banquet is canceled again this year but we hope you will join us for a new signature event, An Art Affair hosted by Belmont Village on Thursday, November 18, 2021, at 5 p.m.- 8 p.m.  Even with a record Golf Classic, our annual fundraising goal is still short by $50,000 for our neighbors in need.  
Please consider a financial gift to St. MAM to ensure we continue to make an impact in the 40207 and 40220 zip codes while building HOPE this holiday season.   

This is St. MAM, our community, YOUR neighbors.  Share if you can the abundance God has provided for our use. 
~ Many Blessings, Julie Abbott, Executive Director
