A letter from a Customer at the Bethany House Hope Chest...


Dear Sisters Kathleen and Ruth,


As I have been reflecting on this past summer, I realized that I would like to thank both of you for the spirit filled people running the Hope Chest.  This summer I took care of my 5 year old grandson every Thursday.  The staff at The Hope Chest contributed to making our Thursdays together memorable and happy occasions.


When Michael, my grandson would arrive at our home in Millis, the first thing he would ask was, "Has Gary opened the store yet?"  Planning for the day involved around this question at 8AM.  One item we found was a bicycle with training wheels which gave rise to yet another activity we can thank The Hope Chest.


However, I must say that the items we found took a back seat to the welcoming spirit of the staff Gary, Jaimo and Cindy.  They made him feel special and wanted.  I know of no other "store" where a child can feel so welcomed.  There must be a ministry of spirit at The Hope Chest and in your caring staff.  After the morning visit, Michael would ask to go back in the afternoon especially if he saw the truck because he knew Gary and Jaimo would be there.


Thank you once again for the spirit of The Hope Chest which is so beautifully expressed by Gary, Jaimo and Cindy.


Pacem Christi,
