“There's 65 kids right now, and they didn't have any underwear, and they didn't have a lot of school supplies. So, in one week's time, we collected 600 pairs, and Probably 7 boxes of school Supplies. Fifth Third picked up on that, they loved the idea of that dignity piece that we provide for our kids at Family House, and they just exploded with compassion.
