I wanted to tell you how emotional it was for me when I dropped toys and kids’ clothes off at your office today. A woman there asked to hug me and I was just so touched and overwhelmed by the true thanks she felt toward me, I found myself driving back up to Ellenton in tears..but happy tears.
I'd had a terrible week and a book I read recently said if you are feeling sad, go do something for someone else and that will lift you up. And I'm here to say it truly did.
Now that I know right where you are I won't be needing the drop off location in Lakewood Ranch anymore. I didn't know earlier that you needed diapers and personal hygiene items for your clients. So now I'm pledging to you that at least once a month I will be coming down with donations for SCLO.
Thank you for helping me to be a better person.
This is an email received from a donor who visited our office for the first time this week. It was so nice for the staff and volunteers to receive this feedback (as well as the donations of course). We felt that her comments are a gift to us.
