 Thank You 


I have been honored and humbled to have been nominated for the Athena Award offered by the Youngstown Warren Regional Chamber and the Vindicator, and at the same time, acknowledge that you and the support of many people who served  at the Basement Outreach Ministries over the years have attributed to this nomination. 


Thank you for volunteering, faithfully donating monetary and in-kind support, praying,  and for the friendships. The ATHENA  Award honors women who reach high levels of professional accomplishment and have devoted time and energy to their community. This reminds me of that "good and perfect gift” that only God can give; and because this is His good gift, I give Him all the Glory for this and everything good.


Thank you for the wonderful years of ministry; much good fruit has come out from the work of the Basement, and because of that, this nomination belongs to you too.  I may have not talked to you in a while, but you were a part of the  Basement in the past, so I want to say thank you for your service and your support to the ministry, families, and individuals in our communities.
