What a difference YOU have made!



Main Room in June
Main Room in August
Thank you to our donors who have brought us this far.  As we anticipate an opening date toward the end of September (stay tuned to this space for the announcement of the date), we are grateful to you for having made our progress possible.  As you can see from these photos, our main room is looking much more like a living room than it was a little over two months ago.  The addition of area rugs, tables, a love seat, plants and prints have really added to the d├ęcor. 

This photo of the front porch will assist you in understanding our next donation request. We have a newly-renovated, beautiful front porch in need of some furniture.  Since this photo was taken, we added a small, brown table, with two dark brown chairs (and the posts have been painted).  However, the porch is quite large, and could use a few more chairs and tables.  If you would like to donate these items, please contact Sister Ann Marie at (973) 470-0844 or sam@patersondiocese.org

Children's Room

Thank you to our benefactors who have been so very responsive and generous in our previous requests.  We are now looking for items for our children's  room.  It is only about 12' by 15', so keep that in mind as you read the following requests.  We would be most grateful for the following:
  • Safety gates: 6' wide for doorway; 3.5' wide for staircase
  • "Play area" gate (that is, one that surrounds and encloses an area) for younger children
  • Foam tiles (similar to "Edushape" tiles)
  • For pre-school children:  new or gently used toys, books, educational computer games, educational DVD's, board games and puzzles
  • New coloring books and crayons
  • Drawing paper
  • Children's table and chair set
  • Small changing table that is very portable (or another type of portable changing area)
  • Flat screen television
If you are able to donate any of these items, or would like to donate the money for their purchase, please contact Sister Ann Marie at (973) 470-0844 or sam@patersondiocese.org.

Thank you and God bless you!
