"We would just like to thank you for the grant. It has helped us out a great deal. It made the month of May a great month. The work you all do does more than you know, and for that we are grateful."
"Thank you so much for taking care of our mortgage payment for the month of July. We can't express enough how truly grateful we are for this grant opportunity during this difficult time. After 37 days in the hospital, Brynn is finally home and is doing well. Again, thank you for this kind gesture. Organizations such as MBA Opens Doors are such a blessing for families such as ours."
"Thank you for all your generosity and support you have extended to our family. We can't thank you enough for selecting our family as one of the recipients of your generous financial gifts. Your thoughtfulness moved us to tears and truly has helped us through such a difficult time. When your child has a life ending illness you take each day as it comes. Some days are better than others. But the one constant in our lives are the friends, community and complete strangers that pray for our family. We consider you to be part of our family. For all you do, we thank you."
