“I wanted to take the time to write to sincerely thank you for your drought assistance. The gift cards that you sent were very much appreciated. As we are about to go into 8 years of drought with minimal to no useful rain in the past 2 years, things have been extremely difficult and it is also difficult to express how much the assistance / support is appreciated. Please pass on my sincere thank you to the citizens and businesses that have contributed to Rural Aid.”
