I need to come and get my seeds lol

I miss you!!!

Meet Amber Pappas. Amber volunteers three days a week at Good Sam. When asked why she decided to volunteer at Good Sam, she replied, “I wanted somewhere I could make a difference. I can see it in people’s eyes that we are making a difference. When grown men come in and cry, you know we are making a difference. I feel like I was called here.”

Thank you Amber for being a Good Sam. You are a shining light to the clients.
