While it's hard to say goodbye to summer fun, there's a whole lot to love about fall. William Cullen Bryant called it, "the year's last, loveliest smile." And despite the global pandemic, many of our program participants have smiles on their faces thanks to you. Today you'll get to read about one such client and see the smiling faces of our littlest clients. I hope you'll take a few minutes to click through today's stories and learn all about Santa Maria's work.

We are still looking for your input on our social media content. Please take two minutes to fill out this survey to give us some feedback on what you'd like to see on our social media channels. You will be entered into a raffle to win one of three prizes!

We are also looking ahead to #GivingTuesday! We will start our Giving Tuesday campaign on November 24, 2020. You'll get an e-mail that day, so stay tuned and mark your calendar for December 1st, #GivingTuesday!

Thank you, once again, for your generosity during these difficult times. We need your support now more than ever.
