    This is incredible! Thanks for giving back to the community! There are so
    many people hurting right now and this iwas a blessing! Thanks to all the company’s
    and people that volunteered and especially to the individuals that organized this for
    the people of Molino. I wish my mom would have known about this. She doesn’t have a
    car so it’s difficult for her to get anywhere and she would have been thrilled to have
    gotten help. I live states away from her, so it’s hard to help her. I’m proud of where I
    grew up! Thank you again for caring about the people! Many parents of children are
    less stressed out today from your generosity and time!
