Words of Appreciation to our Congregation

for our support of Birthday Cake ministry

Dear Friends of the Poor,

Thank you for your great faithfulness over the years in providing sheet

cakes for the homeless and poor with whom our ministry works.

I believe it was dear Lola Morphis who first introduced the idea to your

congregation to provide birthday cakes to help celebrate birthdays each

month at the shelter we had on Stockton Boulevard.

Over the years thousands of hurting souls have been cheered because of

these lovely cakes. I’ve seen not just children, but adults, let out a little cheer

of joy at seeing the cakes coming and saying things like “Oh, they’ve got the

cakes!” Yes, you have a reputation for making great cakes.

We’ve also enjoyed meeting Karlene who has lovingly

brought these cakes to us over the years. We commend

her for her kindness and helpfulness. We appreciate all

your church family members who participate in this

program. You’ve made sad hearts glad and fed them too!

For those in need,

Pastor Deanna Jones
