Thank you, members of the Order of the Eastern Star!

We are so grateful to the members of the Order of the Eastern Star, Hoffner and Dorcas chapters!  They have put a great deal of effort and resources into providing us with countless new sets of thermal underwear; their goal is to provide us with enough to supply us the entire winter!   It is difficult to describe how important this generous commitment has been to our guests this very cold winter.  Thank you generous members of the Eastern Star!
