Donation to Missionaries of Charity, P.O. Box 9260, Detroit, MI 48209
Mom had a special place in her heart for the Missionaries of Charity. My Father and her had donated money in the past to the order founded by Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta. In 1987, they received a thank you note, signed by Mother Teresa. The note was thought to be lost and Mom often talked with regret that it probably ended up accidentally in the garbage when we moved in 1992. Just last month she called me, and my sister, very excited to tell us that she had found the long lost note. The envelope was stuck inside the lid of an old checkbook box with other personal items and, as many times as she opened it, never noticed it was there. She gave me the note. It is not a stamped signature, but clearly made with ballpoint pen.

Many do not know that the Missionaries of Charity work here in Detroit. Because they work with the "poorest of the poor", Mom would be thrilled to know that we are asking for donations to go to them. They come a few times yearly to Assumption Grotto. Above is one photo I took of them on Corpus Christi a few years back.
