Today and every day, Ann’s Place is blessed to serve clients across our community by providing free services that make life-changing impacts to individuals diagnosed with cancer and their loved ones. Below is a poem for you to enjoy, which exemplifies the impacts being made on those who receive Ann’s Place services.
Ann’s Place is grateful for all your support to help us continue to provide those necessary services at no cost for almost a quarter century. We thank you all for making the 2015 Festival of Trees, our largest fundraiser of the year, a huge success!
On behalf of our dedicated and compassionate staff, our Board of Directors, the hundreds of tireless volunteers and all the people we serve, we wish you and your families a very Happy Thanksgiving.
Merci Beaucoup, a Heartfelt Thank You
To Whom It May Concern:
Ann's Place is the kind of place,
Where people come to grow.
Where we learn to feel our strength within,
Through the kindness others show.
It's a place where we can be ourselves,
And just a little more.
A place where we can be at HOME,
As we pass through the front door.
