Sweetness Said About the Sled
"I received your generous donation, and it means the world to me. Because of you, I can continue to deal with this unexpected situation without worrying about how to feed myself. Your gift allows me to stay home safe, and prevent me from the Coronavirus. Which means you save my life. Honestly, I am really exceeded by your generosity. I feel so happy, blessed, and lucky to have you as a donor. Once again, thank you again for your help, and I hope to have the same ability and generosity as you to help others.”

Just wanted to send a “HUGE” thank you for the donation of headphones we have received. We are extremely grateful to be able to provide our families with headphones to assist with their children’s remote learning. As you may know, families are facing some tough times with all the challenges they have come across this school year. These headphones will make a such a difference in the remote learning experience. Once again, we sincerely appreciate it. Thank you.

Sending over food and meals was to (him) was the kindest thing you could have done. (Another) texted me and told me you took care of him again. You have no idea of the impact you are having on families and unaccompanied youth."

I have forwarded the images of all the items you and the Sugarplums ordered. She was super excited and couldn't believe how much you guys ordered for her and the boys. I myself could hardly hold my tears back. We were both at a lost for words. We could hardly believe everything you guys were able to order. This was such a grand gesture...You have taken such a huge load of stress off her shoulders. Please know how grateful and blessed she feels."
