The Episcopal Church Center received a donation and this thank you letter last month.
“Dear Ministry Office,
On May 19th I approached your office in search of my homeless son. Thanks to your assistance, caring and compassion, I found him later that morning. I was very scared, feeling alone and far from home. I asked God that morning for a miracle to find my son somewhere along the miles of beach and thousands of people there, along the beach.

God bless you.
With love and gratitude,
A friend from Arkansas”
