Words cannot express how grateful I was upon receiving the grant. In 1999, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had treatment but, in June 2017, it came back, and I had to have major surgery. I had just had my second surgery in July and then Hurricane Flo hit us. Needless to say, I was already having a hard time and down and out when Flo hit. So, from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank everyone who was involved in this grant.

—W. Riggs, Sanders Ford

“Your professionalism, expertise and responsiveness puts you among the best, and I will always be grateful for the opportunity to have worked with you to get this program started for our company.”

—Pam Moen, Assistant VP of Public Affairs & Public Relations, AAA-The Auto Club
