Letters from recipients and their parents:

Dear Atkinson Family,
The past year has had its challenges and at one point I was at my ‘wits end’ My daughters safety was in jeopardy and her grades were rapidly declining and I really didn’t know what I was going to do. But your generosity and kindness has changed all of that. My daughter is able to get a new start. She is safe and able to get a good education with peace of mind. And for that I am grateful and would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU. Because of you I can also have a peace of mind knowing my daughter is in a safe school and able to learn without any unnecessary interruptions.
I would also like to thank Steve Clements and the Bonner/Prendie family for your immediate attention to this matter.  I greatly appreciate your hard work and efforts.  Once again, thank you all and Gold Bless.
