I received this lovely message from Twyla Teitzel, St. John’s volunteer coordinator, in my inbox. Twyla asked that I share with all of you. Twyla previously offered to come down here to talk to my group of friends about St. John’s. But since I can rarely get all my mamas in the same room, this is the next best thing!

subject RE: donations
Thank you so much for all you are doing for the women and children of St. John’s. I am so touched by the generosity and kindness that all of you have extended to your Sacramento neighbors. Words cannot express how you have touched and are helping to transform the lives of women and children.
Although I am a native of Sacramento, it was just over a year ago when one of my yoga students offered me a job at St. John’s. I did not even realize there was a homeless shelter in Sacramento. As a mother of two, you can imagine how challenging it is, yet how rewarding it is, to be able to help homeless children and their mothers.
St. John’s could not stay open if it wasn’t for the generosity and thoughtfulness of people like you.
Thank you so much. Please contact me anytime if you have any questions.
