To: A Caring Person, Thank you so much for your appreciation! It has been difficult at times to gain the support of some of our community advertisers to assist me in helping to feed our less fortunate citizens! It is done from my heart not for professional gain. As well as the other bands/acts who have volunteered their time and talent to assist me with helping our citizens in need. Your support is very much appreciated by all of us!
