What People Are Saying
"I cried many tears when I lost my job; no money for heat or rent, right at Christmas. My Christmas Sponsor kindly got my kids presents they asked for. I have a job this year, so we are here to sponsor. You helped me rebuild my self-esteem and treated me with dignity when I needed it most."
