My Mom & Dad, along with Beth, Ryan, & Tyler, traveled to West Plains over the weekend for the annual Pendergrass family reunion. While there they were able to represent the Foundation at Willow Springs School (in Willow Springs) where my cousin Melanie Pitts teaches. They did a stuffed animal/coloring book drive for the Foundation. For those of you that don't know, Willow Springs is a small community in Southern Missouri with a population just over 2,000 people. We really appreciate their school supporting our Foundation, especially since they more than likely won't receive benefits from the Abby's Hugs program (unless we are able to grow that big, and wouldn't that be exciting!) A big THANK YOU to Melanie for organizing this for us!
