Take it back to Evergreen Mill is just better for everyone!!

The neighborhood that you live in can't be that great if you are trying to run away people and familes who really need it and won't bring drama to the area. Get off of your high Horses and stop being so Damn Mean!!! I say that it is NEEDED there are too many families out there that need help. Just think about it this way IT COULD BE YOU
