Some people are class acts. That Walgreen's store was a class act also, I'll miss it.

Jeri Fink has been my State Farm Agent for 25 years, and I'm at all surprised she was involved in a project like this.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
