  • This guy had knee surgery and needs to rest for the next 12 weeks or he decides to volunteer at our charity a few times a week with his free time.
    Her kids are both away at college now and the cold doesn't allow for much gardening.
    Her daughter is special needs and she needs a break once in a while.
    He comes along with his daughter and they share their time with us.
    He wasn't always the best father but he's trying to be better.
    These are my people.
    These people who choose to spend their weekends, their evenings, their "days off" giving back to other people they will never know. These people who clean up, count inventory, paint walls, write letters, file papers, make phone calls.
    These people who believe that they are lucky...even if they are not perfect.
    These people who realize we are all in this together. So let's help each other.
    These are my people.
