I so appreciate all the wonderful things that we have received! I am very thankful and never take anything for granted. You and the program have really helped us to help those we serve in a very tangible way. (Staff Person at Mothercraft, Agency Partner)

I wanted to let you know that I am so happy to have received the new work clothing. I have been working on-call in construction but didn’t have great work gear. I picked up two jackets this week, a liner and a shell and let me tell you they will keep me much warmer than what I 

had. And I look pretty good too now! Thank you!

Thank you for a fantastic time out with the kids. It was a nice way to get them out of the house for the afternoon while their mom is on away on military duty.
