Father Malone sends thanks

Over the years I have been struck time and again by the kindness and generosity of the University of St. Thomas community, but never more than during the 2009 Charitable Giving Campaign.

Thank you to all who contributed to the 2009 campaign. You have donated $43,394 to date for the seven supported federations and for other charities that were specifically designated by you. This year I am especially pleased that 83 employees were either first-time contributors or increased their pledges over last year.

On behalf of the Office for Mission I wish to thank you for your generosity to our community – both here at St. Thomas and to our greater Twin Cities community. Special thanks are in order for Gloria Hurtado, Sue Moro, Jacki Biljan, Nina Ruud and the people in Bulk Mail, the Service Center and the Post Office who worked so hard to make sure the booklet and mailing were well done and reached everyone in a timely manner.

Difficult economic times have touched all of us in one way or another, and I am gratified by your generosity this year. The Office for Mission continues to accept donations. If you have not yet contributed but would like to, you can download a pledge form from the Charitable Giving Web site.

Go raibh míle maith agaibh! (Thank you all very much!)
