“I wanted to reach out and thank you again for the hygiene kits we received from Heart to Heart. To date 572 kits were distributed across our 6 counties. Our consumers were ecstatic. One lady sent a formal thank you note and stated that it was the nicest gift she had ever received! We had our staff drop them off at their homes so that we were further able to determine their well-being. Thank you again for your generosity during this difficult time. The lives of nearly 600 people were truly blessed.
