“This is just a short note to thank you all for your generosity.  When we had our fire we lost everything we owned. We didn’t even have shoes to wear to work the next day! Because of generous people like you we were able to get clothing, housing and food. Until you lose everything you never really will be able to comprehend the magnitude of the effect on your life. We started literally from nothing! My daughter and I are active in our community helping out wherever the need is and I’m so thankful those values were instilled in me and I, in turn, instilled them in my daughter. We are truly appreciative of everything you have done during this trying time in our lives.
With gratitude,
-Sonja and Garia Dates”
