A true Good Samaritan, Louise, determined to do all she could to help her neighbours who are hungry, hurting, and homeless by supporting The Scott Mission.
“I’m in the GTA and thought I should help people in my own area. I see so many people without a home, young and old,” she says. “So a couple of years ago, I decided to make monthly contributions rather than a lump sum because I’m retired.”
Giving a smaller gift each month makes it possible for Louise to give regularly on a limited income.
In the wake of the coronavirus, Louise did an even more amazing thing—she contacted The Scott Mission and asked to increase her monthly gift to help the growing number of families and individuals who are struggling with hunger and homelessness. “I thought this was a good time to do it,” she says.
“The Scott Mission gives meals and shelter and tries to help people who need it. We have to help one another. So my monthly gift is my way of helping out. There are people with a lot more money than me, but we can’t just count on them. Others need to help out, too.”
Good Samaritan monthly donors help provide the foundation that provides meals and so much more through their faithful monthly giving.
