My appreciation for my customers

Graphic by Bruna Costa

I would like to thank all of my customers who have supported Street Sense. I find joy when customers purchase a Street Sense newspaper, supporting me and supporting Street Sense. It puts a smile on my face every day. I love meeting new people and seeing their interest when they get a newspaper. I love it when I show my daughter the times I write or when she asks me to read a Street Sense newspaper and she gives me her feedback. My daughter loves that I am happy working at Street Sense.

Supporting myself and my daughter is very important to me and you all make that happen, which is why I am writing this thank you piece. It has been a rough last few years for me when the pandemic hit and things had to change drastically, but you all continued to show your support in purchasing Street Sense. I just want to thank you for making things happen for me and the other Street Sense vendors. I’ve been working at Street Sense for quite a while now and I love what I do. I love meeting my regular customers, as well as new faces purchasing a newspaper.

Thank you so much for being a part of this journey that I have loved. I’m able to breathe again and provide for myself and my daughter. I appreciate each and every customer for their support. I hope everyone expresses their gratitude to people who have made a change in their lives because it really makes people feel good for their contributions in empowering a life.

Thank you for listening!
