I am fortunate to be economically able to contribute to the relief of those who are less fortunate than me. As a society, we need to come together and help each other through this difficult time. COVID has been devastating for so many people. These two non-profit organizations are on the front line and fighting on our behalf. They truly deserve our gratitude and all the support we can offer.”
