“You’re changing lives. The donation is just one small piece of it. All the time that people put in at community centers providing services is a huge endeavor. I’m just a piece of it. It’s much, much bigger than just me. It’s a great organization to be a part of. You selfishly feel good about yourself doing these things. ”

- Kent M., CI sponsor since 2006
