Blessings for Mother's Day

Through the generous contribution from The Roy Houff Company our foundation was able to spread a little Mother's Day cheer.  Our staff delivered beautiful roses to those who participate in our outreach program.  This was a small token of gratitude to show them that we appreciate the hardwork that they have done in raising their children and will continue to do. We also gave flowers to the grandmothers who participate in our outreach program.  Our grandmothers are our greatest treasure, as they have much wisdom, advice and love to share.  We are greatful to have such wonderful, caring, strong women who have touched our lives and the lives of the children within our community.
