St. Gregory’s Pantry recognizes and thanks our young donor, Georgi. He is so kind and thoughtful! He had a birthday party and instead of thinking of himself, he asked his friends to bring gifts for the Toy Land at St. Gregory’s Pantry. Then he and his mom delivered them to us! You are an inspiration to us all!! We thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness, generosity and kindness.
