Bishop Noa Home makes donations

ESCANABA — In the spirit of giving this Christmas season, The Bishop Noa Home for Senior Citizens donated food and $500 each to the St. Vincent de Paul Society (SVdP) and The Salvation Army. The food was donated by Bishop Noa Home staff, residents and families.

Accepting the $500 and food donation was SVdP Warehouse Manager Cindy Bedard. “From the bottom of my heart, I thank you on behalf of the St. Vincent de Paul Society,” she said in thanks to the Bishop Noa Home. “This donation will help a lot of people — both during this Christmas season and throughout the year. We couldn’t do it without you.”

Accepting the $500 donation and box of food on behalf of The Salvation Army was Major Alex Norton. He echoed the sentiments of SVdP, saying, “The food and financial donation we received from The Bishop Noa Home are very much appreciated,” Norton said. “Donors sometimes don’t realize how much their donations mean to people, whether it’s a can of soup, a box of cereal, or a financial donation. Every donation we receive is a way we can meet the needs of someone who comes in our door.”

Speaking on behalf of The Bishop Noa Home, Sister Gloria Schultz, Director of Mission Advancement, said, “We’re glad to do this because they do so much. God Bless them for all they do.”
