Donna gave the listeners an update on where her fundraising efforts are at this time. She talks about the mission of wanting to build a retreat center dedicated to military, veterans, and first responders. So far she has raised $27,000 with the help of many other local organizations stepping in to assist with her mission. For instance, the Suffield High School Zielinski's kindness crew involved students to helping raise awareness and fundraiser by selling bracelets for the first 3 months of school.
