Jacqueline Porter and family.

“I want to thank you so very much for helping to make this dream come true. I really can’t express how much of a difference you have made with your sponsorship; it is helping my family tremendously during this stressful, but exciting time. You not only are helping a student achieve her dream and calling, but you are also helping a mom provide a better future for her family. I will continue to excel, and I will not let you down!”

“I couldn’t be more grateful for your help and donation. This has been a trying year, everything from new shifts working around covid, to having a new addition to the family as well. Wanting to start again to complete what I started out for in reaching my BSN has not been easy. So, I want to thank you again for placing your donation in ‘my corner’. ”
