Dear Friend,


Lockport CARES will be hosting its annual fundraising banquet on Thursday, November 30th at Samuel’s Grande Manor.  We look forward to celebrating the lives that have been touched and changed through the warmth, nourishment, safety and direction that this shelter provides.  One of our guests recently described their stay with us so perfectly… “I didn’t expect to walk into God’s love here.”  What a privilege it is to be the hands and feet of Jesus to each of the guests in their hour of need!


Lockport CARES is an emergency shelter which provides meals and shelter to men, women and children in Niagara County who have no place to go.  CARES stands for Community Action Response Emergency Shelter.  Our guests are able to stay with us for up to ten business days, while being assisted and guided  towards becoming self-supporting, through information and referrals.  We also have the privilege of telling them how much God loves them and to pray with them.  I wish you could see the transformation as hope returns to their eyes!


As temperatures begin to drop, life becomes more challenging for those who have no place to call “home.”  Therefore, we are reaching out to you, asking for your help in meeting some of these needs. 


Our goal is to have the entire cost of the banquet underwritten by businesses, churches and individuals such as yourself.  This allows for all of the donations collected that evening to be allocated entirely to Lockport CARES.  The cost of the banquet will be approximately $8,000.00.


We are incredibly grateful for your continued support of Lockport CARES.  Thank you.  Without generous people like yourself, this ministry would not be able to continue.  Please prayerfully consider the following opportunities.


1.        Help us underwrite the dinner.  Any amount is deeply appreciated, and your name will be printed on the program that evening,  displayed on the power point presentation, listed on Facebook and our website and announced in our newsletter, if you so choose.

2.       Host a table for the event.  Hosting a table simply means that you invite nine of your friends, family members or business acquaintances to sit at the table with you.  You will be provided with a packet on the evening, containing the information you will need about Lockport CARES ministry, for the people at your table.  We anticipate 300 supporters and therefore will need 30 table hosts.


Please fill out the enclosed form and return it to Lockport CARES by Friday, October 13th Feel free to contact Marty Nagy or myself with any questions or concerns.  My contact information is below and Marty’s cell is (716) 622-6148.


Thank you… from the bottom of our hearts.  Jesus said it so beautifully…”whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”  Matthew 25:40



In His Service,
