Volunteer News

Volunteer Coordinator Rosemary Ware shared a recent story. She was shopping recently and noticed some money that a customer had dropped on the floor. A neatly folded $ bill. She turned it in to the store manager. She offered to put it in an envelope, and said if no one claimed it, she would contact Rosemary. No one did and Rosemary was contacted.

From her good heart, Rosemary brought the money to the Foundation and made a very special donation.

Thank you Rosemary!
