Donors and Volunteers open hearts at Little Flower breakfast
“We will always open our hearts and make sure that there is a seat at our table [at Little Flower].”
— Donna Potter
The Little Flower Assistance Center celebrated its ministry with an inaugural fundraising breakfast in February that brought together donors and volunteers that warmed everyone's hearts. Attendees took photos with their sweethearts, won prizes and received awards for their dedication to the Little Flower.
After a breakfast that was generously provided with help from the chefs at Samaritan House, another ministry of Catholic Charities, attendees were delighted to hear the touching stories of long–time volunteers Deacon Dick Miller and Doris Lawrence as well as that of Little Flower’s Director Donna Potter. The gratitude was palpable in the room as all three award recipients expressed gratitude to God for giving them the opportunity to serve their community through this ministry.
Donna Potter, director of Little Flower Assistance Center, has walked alongside the ministry for many years. She was pivotal in securing the current location of the center and solidifying the relationship with Catholic Charities, which took the agency under its wing in December of 2013. Donna’s leadership has helped bring assistance to countless members of the Aurora community. She said Little Flower will keep its hearts open to continue to serve all who come to its doors.
SHOW HEART IN THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY!
If you haven’t had the chance to give, you still can!
