Oh my gosh I cannot thank you enough. I am in tears. You have no idea what a weight that takes off my shoulders. Thank you thank you thank you. I promise you I WILL pay this forward down the road to someone else who does not know how he/she is going to keep a roof over his/her babies heads and keep their bellies full.Recipient of housing help
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generous and kind gifts. My family has had several years of financial hardship, especially at Christmas, and I’m blown away by this kindness.Holiday Giving Recipient
Thank you so much for helping my family in a time of need. We’ve had a rough transition while I was in between jobs. Your help allowed me to get back on track and now things are going well. Without this program I don’t know where we’d be and for that I am forever grateful!Recipient
