To the editor:

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the community and area churches for your incredible generosity in attending or donating to the Good Samaritan barbecue. With your help, we raised around $4,000 that will benefit many people who need a little extra aid. It was so much fun to see everyone come out and support this worthy cause. We’re already looking forward to next year.

If you were unable to attend and wish to donate, send your donation to: St. Patrick Catholic Church, Attn: Good Samaritan, 1110 11th St., Nevada, Iowa 50201.

We thank you from our hearts.
