Amy Abbas, Lead Teacher, Receives Gleason Grant

October 1, 2013

Please join us in congratulating Amy Abbas, Lead Teacher at Citibank Family Center in Sioux Falls, for being honored with a Gleason Grant.  Synod of the Heartland will receive a check for $250 in her name.  Amy went to Tennessee and worked on a house that was non-livable.  They sided the house, put in new windows, cleaned the house out, and painted it.  They made it a home for a family, ensuring that the kids were able to sleep in a bed versus a car.
