2022 reflection

As we close the year I would like to reflect on the many wonderful organizations that are doing such needed work.  The world is in great need of kindness and help for so many people.  I am grateful to the many devoted organizations that we have helped to fund.  They work hard everyday to make the world better for those that have little or are facing difficult times.

Our requests contiue to increase and we are working hard to manage the need.  If you should have any questions on the status of your request, please contact the team at Bank of America.  Their contact information is on the website.

Also, please be mindful of our guidelines:
