City Harvest has been sending my mom a list of the names of people that have donated, and I've seen several OKP names on the list, even though none of yall ever met my brother.
I told my mom about this volunteering suggestion, and her face lit up. It was the first smile I'd seen from her in a while.
Unfortunately, neither of us can make these orientation dates, but in the near future we hope to get our training done, and maybe make an annual (or more often) thing of volunteering with City Harvest.
Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for everything you've done and continue to do.

..for reminding me about City Harvest.
i've been involved with other charitable orgs in the past, but had been meaning to get involved with City Harvest. the memorial fund you set up for your brother definitely lit a spark.
i definitely understand that some people aren't able to make the orientation dates listed (they plan to add more dates). rest assured, your family will be well represented at every function i'm able to attend.
