“Our amazing staff compliment was so touched by the efforts to assist Mustard Seed; and after seeing the immense amount of effort and work put in by the staff at Mustard Seed, they wanted to know how they could continue to help; so they will be making voluntary donations through salary deductions for the upcoming year to provide food and medication for the children,” he shared. “Our Foundation has committed to match all donations by our staff for 2022 to help the Mustard Seed Communities continue the great work they are doing for the most vulnerable among us.”
