BRIGHT IDEAS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES

Billie Millsaps, a seven year old, had the idea of collecting donations for charities around Chattanooga. At the end of each month, Billie and her parents take the donations they have collected to those in need. The family stopped at CRITI a few weeks ago to deliver a huge donation.

What a wonderful example this young lady has set for others to follow in showing kindness to neighbors in need! We are grateful for her kindness and generosity. Thank you Billie and family!
