Honor Thy Father and Mother
This is just what one of our supporters did...all the way from Chicago! We received a generous first time donation and wondered about the connection. While there are only five of us on staff, frequently processing donations is a task of the Administrative Director or myself. Thus the donation, while much appreciated, produced conversation between the two of us. I even sent out a query to the board members thinking that the connection was from one of their contacts. And so the mystery began....
However, as we prepared to honor and thank our faithful supporters, his name emerged. I knew that his address was a Chicago one; but I decided to send him an evite anyway. And what a wonderful surprise to find that he lives in Chicago but was donating to Homework House because of his father who volunteers as a tutor with us!
Amazing....his dad has to be honored!
