Need and want

Need and Want…..

There is a difference between NEED and WANT.

How many times have you said to yourself …..

I need that pair of shoes……

I need a latte…….

I need a new car…..

I need a new TV……

I need a bigger TV…..

How many pairs of shoes can you wear at any one time ?

Have you ever needed food for your table ?
Needed a warm coat to stay warm ?
Needed mittens or gloves to keep your hands warm ?
A hat for your head?
Shoelaces for your shoes ?

Our winter Outreach to Paris fills some very basic needs, in inner city Aurora.
Where NEEDS are needs, not WANTS.

On Saturday. November 20th, we are delivering 48 Thanksgiving baskets to Paris.
274 family members in the Paris community will have Thanksgiving. This is our 6th year of supporting Paris with our winter outreach. Here are a few quotes from the Paris community :

-“Getting this holiday helping hand is very meaningful to our family because otherwise we would not be able to celebrate Thanksgiving.”
-Paris Family

-“Our family did not have enough groceries to celebrate Thanksgiving and one of the families who received a basket helped us. The Thanksgiving outreach from GGCC has a far reach in our community.”
-Paris Family

-“It’s great to hear the Thanksgiving stories of students who receive the Thanksgiving outreach from GGCC because many times we as teachers worry about whether our students will get to share the same special time with their families as we do during the holiday break.”
-Paris Teacher

-“ The Thanksgiving outreach from GGCC not only helps in making sure our students get to have valuable family time during the holidays, but it also reaches all across our community as we see the giving spirit spread from the kind actions of GG.”
-Paris Staff Member

Thank you for your support of this precious group of kids and their families.

May you have a blessed Thanksgiving and receive the Lord’s blessings and bounty.

God’s Peace,
Maureen Herzog
