Charity Comes Small and Big
Good things come in small packages! This week, St. Vincent's was reminded of the wisdom of that adage when four young gentlemen came in to donate the proceeds of their lemonade stand. Lucas & Enzo Basile and Amir & Saif Farooq, from the Lincoln Park area, held a lemonade stand during the summer. Familiar with St. Vincent de Paul Center, the boys decided they wanted to give their money to charity. They came to our Homeless Outreach to present their earnings to the Center as a gift. We are grateful for their generosity and the reminder that it is not the size of the gift, but the heart from which it comes.
