There is a song that my Mother used to sing to us when we were growing up that my brothers and I will never forget.
Whenever we would try and tell her that she owed us money for the chores we had to do around the house, she would simply say the words: “NO CHARGE” to us!
This Thanksgiving, when we reflect on the words of the mother in this song, and the implications it has on each of us and all we have been given, please consider helping others to remember love with no charge.
Help us to help the hundreds who come to the Franciscan Friars in desperate need of food, clothing, shoes, socks, medical attention, and simple companionship during this Thanksgiving time.
The only thing worse than no food on Thanksgiving is having no food and being alone.
There are so many who come to us who are poor. Please, help us to help them. Help us show them your care and love – NO CHARGE.
