“WOW!! I am amazed by the generosity! My daughter is a single parent of two boys who is struggling to make ends meet. When she filled out the paper from Barnabas, we just thought it would be a backpack. We were humbled to see that all the school supplies for the boys where there for them along with a backpack.. Also lots of help from the library, the Fig Tree Outreach Program, and I ran into the school nurse! What a community effort of love and support. I want to say thank you and God bless you.” – 2015 Client
