“Words can't describe the experience I had this week. The fact that our group was able to touch the lives of so many families in Kentucky is amazing. This week I discovered the true meaning of joy through 4 year old Christian at my worksite. I experienced love in action and I am so blessed to have been a part of this trip.”Kat ArenaHigh School Volunteer
