Looking back over the past year, we are grateful for every gift and volunteer hour that came our way. One of my favorites is from 4-year old Julia. When our appeal letter came to her house, she wanted to know all about it and what it was for. After her parents explained that some people do not have enough food and are hungry, she rushed to her piggy bank and asked that they send her money, $4.87, to help other kids. Besides being such an inspiring reflection of her philanthropically minded parents, Julia serves as a joyful reminder that every gift is a treasure and together, they bring our mission to life.
