We’ve had one amazing summer! It was a lot of work, and it couldn’t have happened without Our Donors, Our Volunteers, Our Space, The Bishop, The Board & Staff, and The Missioners. Today we’d like to thank The Missioners!

Teens and their chaperones traveled from Clarence, NY, most of Ohio, Newark, NJ, and Norfolk, VA to join the Eaton Summer Reading Program this summer as junior counselors. They came a week at a time and they lived with us, gave their all, and helped us support literacy in Western New York. Their fees helped us to pay our bills, and their hope and energy reminded us of why we are trying to change the world – beginning with our own corner of it.
