One of our donors made a gift in memory of their daughter-in-law’s father who passed away.

The note they received as thanks is worth sharing, and it’s a good reminder that we all were kids at one time.

“I appreciate…the donation of new shoes to 5 needy children. It touches my heart, especially since my Dad grew up in the coal hills of Kentucky and he used to tell me how he would carry his only pair of shoes to school in bad weather so they would last, and when he outgrew them they still had to be worn until the next pair could be afforded!

So, it’s appropriate to remember my dad by giving others a gift he so easily could have been a recipient of if it had been available to him!”
