MASONIC HOMES AND MASONIC CHARITIES

The holiday season holds a special meaning for each of us. As Freemasons we not only recognize the virtue and vitality of FAITH, FAMILY, FRATERNITY, and COMMUNITY, but we also experience personal fulfillment by helping to further these important elements of our vision through our personal philanthropy.

You are aware of the outstanding services our Masonic Homes and the Masonic Charities provide for our Brethren and their families, the elderly and the youth, and how we reach out into the community to help our friends and neighbors. All of the Masonic Charities are vital: the Masonic Homes, the Pennsylvania Youth Foundation, The Pennsylvania Masonic Foundation for Children, The Masonic Library and Museum of Pennsylvania, and the Grand Lodge Masonic Charities Fund.

Your contribution is important--it does make a difference. If you haven't responded to the Masonic Homes and the Masonic Charities Appeal letter you received last month, there is still time to do so before December 31, 1999. Please consider the needs addressed by the Masonic Charities and necessary work we have started.

Thank you. Please mail your contribution to:
