on your feet


Our Community Stay Strong


do the right  thing

We don't hear much about the working poor because there is a proud silence that comes with taking care of yourself and your family without charity or welfare checks.

Day after day, they battle the odds determined to stand on their own two feet, - True Americans, the kind of Americans that founded our country and the kind of Americans that fight to keep it strong - heroes.

Heroes who don't have their hands out and heroes who don't beg for money in the parking lot. They work and they struggle and they do it in silence with a polite smile no matter how much they hurt.

But sometimes -- just sometimes -- a hero falls on times so hard that someone needs to reach out and lend a hand. And sometimes -- just sometimes -- a simple once in a lifetime gesture has the power to lift a soul up off the ground long enough regain the balance needed to carry on the American Dream.
