Q: HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED WITH THE JEFFREY FOUNDATION?
MARA: I was introduced to the Jeffrey Foundation by a friend in 2002 that took me on a tour of the Center. After the tour, I realized that this organization was extremely important in helping underprivileged children, who would otherwise, not have any help. That struck a chord in my heart.
Q: WHY IS THE JEFFREY FOUNDATION SUCH AN IMPORTANT ORGANIZATION?
MARA: When I met Alyce Morris Winston, the founder of The Jeffrey Foundation, I was so taken by her dedication, vision and hard work. She has become an inspiration to me. She has motivated me to be a part of the Foundation and serve as an active contributor to this very worthy cause.
