Thanks for organizing this event (Sanctuary Village Shelter Dinner). It is always nice to share something with Patrick. Both of us are very grateful to have the opportunity to give back to our community.


Sanctuary Village

When I arrived there were twenty women ranging from mothers of current sixth grade students to a mom of a recent graduate.  It was chilly in the warehouse and the amount of apples to be processed was daunting but there also was a lot of laughter among the volunteers.  One of the moms told me “we make volunteering fun!”  Now I know where the boys learned this valuable lesson.
