Responses from Recipient Agencies:
Thank you for the wonderful Valentine's Day spa bags. The thoughtfulness and generosity of organizations like yours makes a huge difference in the quality of life for the clients of the Lake County Haven. Your support assists us in empowering homeless women and children to achieve permanent independent living.
On behalf of Nicasa and the women at our Women's Services program, thank you very much for your generous donation of 60 Valentines Gift Bags filled with shampoo, soap, lotion and other goodies. These gifts were very appreciated by the women in the program and boosted their self-esteem and confidence.
