#ThankfulThursday: Reaching New Heights in Empowering our Youth

Branches Award Marile and Jorge Luis Lopez, Esq.

We hope our new #ThankfulThursday reflection finds you well.

Today, we reflect and give thanks for the outstanding work of Branches’ and great success of their 16th Annual Black Tie & Blue Jeans Dinner & Auction.

On Saturday, Marile, our children, parents and I joined our extended Branches family in supporting their life-changing work — “to serve, educate and inspire people through student, family and financial stability services in partnership with our communities“.
