Wish #21 - $100 Provides A Year Of Spiritual And Social Needs For A Family Living In Poverty 

Diocese of Marquette, Michigan

For 40 years, until it was decommissioned in 1995, the Sawyer Air Force base fostered a vibrant economy in this remote part of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. But with its closing has come suffering. Jobs are scarce. Poverty is rampant. Hope is in short supply. With your support, the local St. Francis Connection center provides community meals, spiritual comfort, and a hand up to families struggling to keep their homes and their way of life.
