Give the gift of HOPE today during Concordia Lutheran Ministries’ Season of Hope.
As you know, the Christmas season is a time for us to prepare our hearts and homes for the arrival of Jesus Christ – born physically in a manger in Bethlehem more than 2,000 years ago, and born into our hearts as the Savior – our greatest gift from God!
At Concordia Lutheran Ministries (a place where, as our President & CEO reminds us, we still say “Merry Christmas”) we call this special time of year our Season of HOPE.
Hope – what a powerful word. It’s a word that implies optimism, and something brighter and better tomorrow. It is a word that describes the feelings of so many of Concordia’s residents and patients, too. Those we are privileged to serve come to Concordia with hope – for healing, for happiness, for comfort. Our residents and patients are hopeful that each day, they will see and feel our best efforts to be the “hands and feet of Jesus” in the care we provide.
Our best efforts don’t merely require emotional and spiritual energy. They also require financial resources to continue the excellent operation of Concordia’s 17 facilities across 14 campuses in two states. And that is where the Season of HOPE campaign comes in.
During this season of awaiting and celebrating Jesus’ birth, we ask all those affiliated with Concordia to consider a year-end charitable contribution. We want to highlight how your gift can directly impact the lives of Concordia’s patients, residents and families. The greatest gift someone could give is the HOPE for continued support of the important mission of Concordia Lutheran Ministries.
Your gift to Concordia Lutheran Ministries may contribute to the following:
$20 feeds a patient or resident a healthy and nutritious holiday meal.
$40 provides patients two (2) hours worth of phone minutes to talk with their loved ones.
$25 provides a struggling independent resident with an hour of housekeeping assistance.
$30 provides a half an hour of massage therapy for a resident or patient.
$38 sponsors an orphan for a month through our Angel Tear Ministries grant program.
$60 jumpstarts a new coloring activity program for memory-impaired residents.
The possibilities for giving are endless at Concordia Lutheran Ministries. Any gift in any amount has a hopeful impact on the many lives that Concordia touches daily.
And there is no better time to give than now. Through December 31, any gift you make to Concordia through our Season of HOPE is eligible to be matched, through an offer from a generous anonymous donor.
In this time of gift-giving, we ask you to send your own message of Hope through a meaningful gift of your choosing. For more information or to give today, please visit www.CLMSeasonOfHope.com or call the CLM Foundation office at 724-352-2571, ext. 8355, 8363 or 8291.
On behalf of the CLM Foundation, we extend warm wishes that your heart be full this Christmas season.
