Awesome Response

By Shane Vander Hart 

You should have seen how packed my car was (I’ve got to remember my camera) when I delivered presents to Youth Homes of Mid-America, the clinical treatment director, Chrys Bitting’s jaw dropped. The ten boys who will be staying there over Christmas will have four packages each to open.

The kids at Polk County Youth Services will have a brighter Christmas as well.
