She graciously shared her personal journey to financial stability and good health with guests at the 2018 Give From the Heart Gala. Lorraine lit up the room with her inspiring story: "Without UCM, I would not be the happy, healthy person you see tonight. Thanks to the fresh food at UCM's food pantry, I am able to eat healthy even on my limited budget."
"How can you thank someone who has touched every part of your life? That’s how I feel about UCM and about your generous support that makes UCM’s work possible. This is a quote I like that sums up my feelings perfectly: 'No one is more cherished in the world than someone who lightens the burden of another.'
"Thank you for your support that helps me and other families. Your generous spirit and abundant kindnesses will always be remembered and with me in my heart. Thank you."
