For the month of April, we will be collecting for The Thomas Merton Center which is located in Bridgeport. They provide “Meals, Shelter, and Support” to those in need in the greater Bridgeport area.
Their stated mission: “The Thomas Merton Center is committed to providing a loving, safe and hope-filled community atmosphere that responds to the needs of its guests. Respecting the dignity of each person, we reflect to the individual and the community our shared responsibility to love and support one another. We believe the sharing of a hot meal is an invitation to come in and share in a place where one can belong; respect and love are mutually given and received; each person is valued and not to be judged; and healing life’s hurts is possible with people who care. Collaboration with other agencies and people is essential to meeting the needs of those we serve.”
