To the Holiday Food and Gift Basket folks, the Community of Congregations, and families of Oak Park and River Forest:

Holy Moly! A huge thanks to everyone who donated their time and gifts to our tenants at The Oaks, Mills and Ryan Farrelly apartments.

As in previous years, the Oak Park/River Forest community went out of their way to shower our seniors with love and attention. We’d like to take this opportunity to tell you how much your kindness was appreciated. Many of the gifts were personalized, which was a treat.

We’d especially like to express our sincere gratitude to the three women who joyfully worked night and day to make sure every recipient was recognized: a shout-out to Ms. Valerie Woods, Mary Jane Welter and the lady who took the reins, Patty Henek. You ladies will be blessed.

We’d also like to acknowledge an amazing couple, Dan and Kathy Payoli. You have shared your food and family with us for many years. Please believe how much your kindness is appreciated. We hope to see you next year.

Our sincere thanks from your friends at The Oaks, Mills and Ryan Farrelly apartments.
