Quotes from gas card recipients:

“Thank you so much. There is so much need right now in our community, and it is so helpful to have these cards to give to families in need. Last week I gave a few of the gas cards to a parent who, due to some family changes, is needing to drive their child to and from school every day from Lakeville, and finances are a concern. This driving arrangement could go on for awhile, and parent was SO grateful when I offered the gas gift cards — it filled a real need for this family. Thank you for your support of our school community.”

“Please thank your congregation for their generosity, it is so needed right now. I’m so grateful to have these resources to share with our families in need.”
