Senior Testimonial !
"I would like to take a moment and write Mending The Gap Inc for the incredible program you have started and I am a part of. I am on a small fixed income. Sometimes it is hard stretching that fixed income to be able to purchase groceries, paper goods, and cleaning supplies. Thanks to the monthly supplies received from you, and the connection from the kids, my stress level is lighter. Your kindness truly touches my life in an awesome way. Thanks for all you do".
