Testimonials

I was recently helped out financially by your generous organization. I would just like to thank you and express my sincere gratitude. With your help I was able to maintain a roof over my head and a vehicle to allow me to look and apply for work.  I just graduated with a degree in the field of Respiratory Therapy on May 14, 2015 and am so excited to start this new chapter in my life. Your help has made this transition a lot less stressful with a chance to achieve my end goal of being gainfully employed. Once again, please accept this letter of gratitude and feel free to contact me at any time for future volunteer work or upcoming events. I will forever be thankful for your generosity and compassion.
