One thought on “Emily’s Mission Continues To Help Others

  1. You should be commended on your efforts for helping those who are in need of compassion and kindness. The homeless can be “invisable” to the average citizen and are often forgotten. My hope is that this community continues to rally behind your mission for many years to come. You are a remarkable young lady. Bless you and your family and all those that you help on this Thanksgiving.
