» "Val, I cannot express my gratitude enough! Our students are so happy with the donations and the staff is grateful as well. These utensils will definitely make a difference in their training, and the bags of spices and cake mixes are going to light up their week as we give them away to them tomorrow after a hard work week. Have a wonderful evening and thank you again."

» "Val, Your lady was very helpful in assisting in bringing the contributions into the building from the car; then our Program Manager brought a buggy to help. I did not expect that Hillcrest would receive this much, but we sure could use them. Half of it will go to the other office today for our consumers on the other side of town. We do appreciate your great service, and continue to pray for your good health and sustenance. Have a very blessed weekend and take care." (in reply to a donation of L'Occitane product--donation from The Four Seasons)

Our chairs already have been worked in at an event this weekend, so Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Your generosity means a lot to Changing Perceptions, to Andre and Demetryus who now have beds to sleep in, and to me personally for helping us live out our support and mission. Thank you for what you do for so many people, and thanks for what you did for us. We are grateful."
