There are so many people to thank. Thank you, first and foremost to each of our volunteers, and each of your organizations. We are overwhelmed by your generosity of spirit, and your giving of your time and energy. And a special thank you to our aforementioned brave men and women in blue!
Thank you to Rev. Linda Roby, her team and First United Methodist Church Dallas, and Rev. Heather Mustain, her team, and Wilshire Baptist Church for hosting the main Count sites, for investing significant time and resources in making us feel like family, and for being indispensable in pulling off such a smooth dual site operation.
