"Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go." -Mother Teresa

We believe that the love Mother Teresa spoke of is spread through the sharing of our time and talents.

“You’ve touched people and known it. You’ve touched people and never may know it. Either way, no matter what your life feels like to you right now, you have something to give. It is in giving to one another that each one of our lives become meaningful.”
