Today we formally acknowledged Marie Andersen who is known as the Acquisition and Distribution Diva in The Villages. She works tirelessly to gather and distribute goods to those in need – a truly remarkable woman and an amazing example of kindness. We presented her with our “thank you for your kindness card” along with a dozen roses and a gift certificate to help her acquire more goods for those in need. Our founder, Joe Santoro, actually gave her his Kindness T-Shirt off his back.
This was our first formal acknowledgement. One of our club members invited her to her to her home for lunch and we pulled off a surprise “Publisher’s Clearing House” type of appearance. It was quite exciting and she was quite taken back.
