On behalf of Jeff and Johanna Herron, we are donating a total of $800 to organizations that work with foster children in our community. We are so honored to make these donations in memory of Ronald Dale Fritsche who fostered confidence, independence, and strength in others. He enriched lives with humor, spirituality, compassion, and love. Ronald was Johanna's father, and worked with foster children. We are splitting the donation between two local organizations that can carry on the love for these precious kids, Bridge the Gap and Office Moms & Dads.
Thank you, Jeff and Johanna, for trusting Tesha with your home purchase and allowing us to make these donations in memory of Ronald.

About Office Moms & Dads
Office Moms & Dads was founded in 2013 to respond to the community's need for assistance in making children feel secure and comforted while they are being taken into protective custody. The welfare office visit is a stressful time for both the children and their social workers, and Office Moms & Dads is trying to make that day easier for everyone involved. By providing childcare, they allow the social workers to focus on making sure the child is going to be safe and well cared for in foster care. They also help make sure the child has an easier day, by entertaining, helping with basic needs, or just being there for them.
