Someone stopped by Open Hands, Open Heart Tuesday March 7th. They left an envelope and this was what was in it. I have no idea who may have done this, the note was not signed. I would like to thank either he/she who showed such a display of love and giving. All the money will be used to purchase underclothes and socks for boys.
