Just wanted to sing the praises of VVSP volunteer, Mama G. Not only did she provide us with beef stew and work her magic pricing all the jewelry that was produced by Target and filling the showcase, she dove into cleaning the break room for our gathering today. Bring your white gloves because we can “almost” eat off the floor it’s so clean!!!
Granted she is my mom, but she took this on because VVSP is her FAV and she wants VVSP to always be that shining star that we are!!!!!
