Farmingdale, NY (12/05/2013) – Monica and Graham Moody, owners of the Minuteman Press located in Coventry, printed over 700 Christmas Cards for the Bishop of Coventry, free of charge! As a Holiday gift this year, Bishop Chris Cocksworth asked for help in designing and printing his Christmas cards. The Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre designed the cards, and asked Minuteman Press of Coventry for their help with the printing.
Monica notes, “When CRMC contacted us we were delighted to offer our help for a good cause and aid the Bishop in producing his Christmas cards this year, both to help him and give something back to our local community”. The donating of these cards allows the Bishop to donate the money allocated for the printing to the Coventry Destitution Fund to help provide shelter, clothing and companionship to those who are destitute in the city.
Minuteman Press Home Office along with Area Manager Mark Jones would like to extend a “job well done” to Monica, Graham and staff. We wish you and all of our friends and family and very happy and health holiday season!
