What’s your most memorable MCI experience?
There was a young kid crying on the front stoop. Upon inquiring with him about his tears. He stated he had a stomach ache because he was hungry . Immediately we moved to feeding him . Shortly after he had stopped crying and felt better. He then headed over to the playground to join some other kids.

MCI has impacted my life by giving me an opportunity to impact children and families . In a broader spectrum of collaborations and partnerships.
