Prior to 2020, Andy and his fiancé, had never needed to utilize a community service. Andy shares, “I have always worked and was able to provide for my family, so it was humbling to admit that we needed a hand.” After seeing a news article, they quickly got in line. “When we arrived and saw the line of cars, it was evident that this organization truly cared about those in need after such a rough year – I don’t know what we would’ve done without them.”
