We wanted to share this video as a small token of thanks to our amazing volunteer Larry McCoy. Larry and his volunteers put on picnics, concerts, dinners and more for our clients several times a year, including a Thanksgiving dinner this evening for our homeless veterans. This video tells HIS story of why he feels called to help those who are going through hard times. We love you Larry!!! ... See MoreSee Less
