This morning [Tuesday] when getting a latte at The Coffee Bar in Shaw a man approached me thinking I was someone he was waiting for. I was swift to tell him he had the wrong person.

We are grateful beyond measure, but as we confront an uncertain new school year, we are asking for help once again. Our $20,000 goal will ensure we are able to do three essential things: Read More
