Our Family - Givers and Receivers

"All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we're giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That's one of the things that connects us as neighbors- in our own way, each of us is a giver and a receiver." - Fred Rogers

Apple Seeds Staff is family and we are all givers and receivers. 

Family isn't always blood. They are the people in your life that want you in theirs. The ones that accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and love you, no matter what.
