I believe in giving back, my mother used to take my sister, brother and I when we were children to different soup kitchens to help serve food, we would donate also, service has always been in my heart.

Over these years I have volunteered along with my three children  and, I would have them volunteer,  or we would donate food, money, toys and clothing, and there were times that we would also find ourselves in need, I am and will be forever humbled by it all. ( Now, they are all grown and I have grandchildren).

I have given my art away to many different charities, Sororities, Sport Fundraisers, Churches, Schools, Colleges
