I am so appreciative and grateful for the help the Make it Count Foundation gave to me upon graduation from high school. i was able to meet with Mr. Reese and Mr. Corcoran and was given advice that will last me a lifetime. I look forward to keeping them updated on my college education and beyond, as I know I will never forget the help and guidance they have given me. I hope to someday be able to pay it forward as they have done for me, inspiring me to always make it count.

Make it Count Foundation has touched the lives of many, for me it has been an eye-opening experience. Everyday life sometimes takes over the small important things life has to offer. But Make It Count has allowed me to put some things aside and reach out to help those in need. I feel very fortunate to have been part of this organization and plan to continue to help in whatever way I can to improve our community.

What the Make It Count foundation is doing is just great. Helping local Vets in small ways that make a huge difference in their lives. Seeing the improvements made at the VFW and the shelter make me proud to volunteer my time for Make It Count. It is a small foundation working hard to raise money to help the people that serve our country.

Seeing the older Vets so happy with the work completed that they now will be able to get an elevator that is so badly needed. It was nice to witness the end result.

There are no changes to be made. I see a new foundation working hard to grow to be able to help more people. Make It Count has kept it simple and focused their efforts on those who may have been overlooked yet need help badly.
