“This is a great way to honor the mothers in your life. We are thankful that Melissa Hurley from Memories by Melissa Photography and Pam West from the Chocolate Shoppe, Etc. are coming together to support this fun initiative. It is especially heart-warming because both are graduates of our micro-enterprise programs and are continuing to work with us in our Ambassador Program.” said Gilda Nardone of Women, Work, and Community. “From many different perspectives, last year’s partnership with Coffee By Design was very successful. Adding more entrepreneurs as partners to the mix will enable us to build on last year’s successes.”
