- Sevde N. Fersat, Volunteer Coordinator of Embrace Relief Wisconsin Branch said “It was definitely a meaningful experience, to see smiles on their faces, to share and eat our meal with them. As Tito Ortiz said “It’s always nice to look in the mirror at the end of the day and see that you helped somebody’s life!””
