We decided to collect backpacks and school supplies as a new project this year. The goal was to collect enough items to fill 20 backpacks for local students. The response was so great that we filled 81 backpacks for local children. Over 80 people (including adults and children) volunteered to make this project a success. Thanks to all who donated and helped in any way. The backpacks were distributed to students in Fayette and Somerset Counties.
I became a mommy in 2015 to a beautiful baby boy, Daniel John, who taught me the depth of a mother's love and the sorrow of neonatal infant loss.
