What an Amazing Experience

Today was very special for me. I went over to St. Isidore school to help with their Double Lunch Day. The staff and students of St. Isidore brought in a second lunch that I drove down to the Ottawa Mission with Ms.Lisa from their school. St. Isidore sent 155 lunches and a bag full of food donations! WOW! When we arrived, everyone was happy to see us and they even gave us a tour! It was an amazing experience and I am so grateful to everyone who helped to make this an amazing experience. The community from St.Isidore is very kind, generous and thoughtful. Their donations are truly appreciated!
