Ann Spataro- Currently living in Texas, Ann and her husband Fred have overseen projects for the kitchen at the HDC. They challenged their large family to donate funds in lieu of Holiday gifts to replace the ancient and inadequate stove and fridge used to prepare meals for the community.

The kitchen feeds not only the children of the HDC but also provides literally thousands of meals to the hungry of Area Q.
