    I would like to thank all the beautiful people that came out to help last night. It was another awesome experience. I enjoyed meeting those new to this outreach effort. I want everyone to know that by your very presence it says something special to the displaced people we visit. I am certain that our friends appreciate everything you have done for them. Remember every little bit helps. And please understand that this is just as much you, the volunteers, and where you are in your life as it is for those that we help. Thank you. Love and blessing!! :-)
