Once again, the Portland Council benefited from the generosity of those Providence Medical Group employees who participated in the 2017 annual Table of the King event that was held on February 16th. Employees were asked to forgo their normal lunch on that day and instead, enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread, in accordance with a tradition started in France in 1800 by Mother Gamelin of the Sisters of Providence, who stated Treat the poor with kindness and politeness; they are our lords and masters.” This year, the event raised over $27,000 in support of our programs, and on May 11th two representatives from Providence presented us with the check at our Cornwell St. location. We wish to thank Providence and all their employees and guests, for their continued support of our  mission.
