This woman and her volunteers are angels. Every person who has the time, and there are a lot of us in Danville who are privileged to be able to not work outside the house, should look deep inside ourselves and give our time to others on a daily basis while our kids are in school. It's nice to be able to treat ourselves with working out at the gym, spa treatments, and socializing with friends, but we in Danville need to give back to others in less fortunate communities on a regular basis. Let's lead a life of service and teach our kids by example.
