“…wanted to say thank you (to FaDSS worker) again for setting this up for me. I was approved for $320 so it should get me through the rest of winter with saving me a few bucks. She (CAPS worker) also gave me a $50 gift card for Keith’s foods which will be very helpful as well. Thank you for all you do for my little family.”
