Volunteer Testimonials

Having a Literacy Kit would have made a difference for me growing up.

This is the first time I’ve done anything like this. The setup was perfect, the instructions were perfect, and everybody just wanted to pitch in and help.

Putting hygiene kits together is such a FUN activity to do with our entire family.
