I hope the new year finds you and your family well. It's hard to believe that 2022 is already over! It was such a great year for Believe in Me and we accomplished a lot thanks to the support of our volunteers, donors, and corporate partners. Let me tell you about some of what we were able to achieve with your help. Your generosity helped us fund 18 children's charity programs in 2022, which helps make sure kids have a safe place to call home, a family that loves them, a feeling of community, and opportunities to learn, build self-esteem and have fun. We're so grateful to our volunteers for their gifts of time and talents and so thankful for our donors who make it all possible. We couldn't do what we do without you!
