With the completion of the Letters From Home program, volunteers recollected their various experiences with the organization throughout its nine-year history.
On Sunday, Letters From Home held its final letter-stuffing, followed by a retirement ceremony inside the Sacred Heart Parish Center in St. Marys, where the organization has been headquartered since its founding.
"It (LFH) has come a long way. It's bittersweet for us to close. We have touched lives that we had never planned on. The person that sent in that card that didn't think it was that big of a deal, it was a big deal. Those cards mattered. There will definitely be tears here," Christine Jovenitti, LFH founder and director said.
