“It was an incredibly moving morning with the elderly folk. This morning was a great reminder of why we do what we do. A great reminder to count our blessings and be grateful for all we have and use what we have in our hearts and in our hands to be a blessing to others,” said Norcott.

She also conveyed their gratitude to everyone who support the Share your Treasure drive.
