I loved meeting with the first of Unite by Night's three finalists for our year 3 community partner organization: For Every Little Handprint.
The organization's Executive Director Olivia Larson is doing amazing work locally to fight poverty and address the needs of children in Buffalo and Western New York. She's a natural born rising leader and I love how she has been inspired by her mercy education and the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, the founders of her high school.
Combating racism, bias and discrimination can begin simply with breaking down barriers for vulnerable populations and I have no doubt that this organization is making a meaningful impact here in our community and beyond.
