Dear Kenny,

On behalf of DeeCilla Comfort Center, please accept my most sincere appreciation for your overwhelming generosity. You and your team have been such a blessing to us as we work to change the lives of women and children transitioning from homelessness and abuse to independence and freedom.

Words cannot truly express our level of gratitude for supplying the playset and covering irrigation cost to create a fun and safe environment for the children, in our program, to enjoy. The children were so excited, as they watched the volunteers arrive and begin building the set. Though I personally expressed my thanks to Randy, Jodi, and Dylan I wanted to let you know how impressed I was with them. I could not believe how this family stayed and worked for twelve hours putting the playset together. Not to mention, they were the most patient and kind-hearted individuals as they took time to interact with the children who were present. They shared tools, teaching the children how to safely help which was a major boost for their confidence and self-esteem. The entire day was like Christmas for the children. They went to bed that evening with great anticipation of getting up early and going out to try out the set the next day. And that they did! They have been outside every single day.

It has not taken long before the imaginations have taken over! I went to conduct a visit, peeked outside, and noticed the boys had carried a folding chair to the top of the fort, parked it in front of the wheel and from what I learned have been playing, “king of the hill.” It is absolutely hilarious and such a joy to see. Thank you for helping the children have a space to “be children.” At such an early age they have already experienced so much, it is great to see them “just be kids” and have fun.

Sometimes, we reach out to help others thinking we can help just a little never realizing the impact we are really making in the lives of others. You have made a tremendous difference in the lives of our residents. Without your help, we would not have been able to provide this for our families.

Thank you again for being a vital part of our community and helping us to create change where change is needed.
