"When my children were young a neighbor stepped up with love in her heart and made sure my children had what they needed. That was 1983. Everything I give back is in her honor.  It is all of our jobs to make sure children are loved and protected. "

"My favorite time being here was when we went to Hershey Park. The youth raised the money for the trip and seeing them enjoy themselves after putting in hard work was really nice. The youth are very enjoyable to be around and it is a great experience."
