KIND Featured on WJLA-TV News Segment

Anchor Leon Harris featured Jeremy and KIND on a Harris’ Heroes segment. That kind of recognition of our mission and work is certainly both welcome and gratifying. Even more special was this email Jeremy received shortly after the segment aired, from a parent named Jackie: “I wanted to take the time to say thank you for what you are doing! My son receives the food every Friday and it is such a big help for us. He comes home excited to pull out his bag. Being a single mother of three with a part time job living pay check to check puts me in a very stressful situation. It’s people like you like that touch my heart and really put tears in my eyes for helping children. So thank you and God bless!”
