Special All Souls Community Center gift

All Souls Community Center presented a special gift to Mike, one of its after-school program participants. Program Director Happy Johnson describes it as one of his favorite moments saying, "It's certainly our photo of the year and it might be the best picture ever! To say that Mike has overcome a lot of adversity in his young life is an understatement. And so to see him smile like this brings a lot of personal joy."
