She's given us many smiles & hugs

Many of us in the Kansas City area frequent the Midtown Costco. For years, we have been greeted by one associate who always makes our days brighter. She calls all of us "baby", and treats us like we are part of her family. Her smile lights up the store, her giggle is infectious. And her hugs? Well, let's just say, her hugs are worth a million -she will cure what ails you with one "Hey baby, how you doing today?"

This wonderful woman's name is Miss Debra Rene'e Reese, "Miss Debra" as we all call her. She recently suffered a medical event so severe, it will change her life forever. Word quickly spread of Miss Debra's ill health. We started by sending her loves and hugs through letters and cards. Her family tells us these have definitely bolstered her spirits. But we want to do more.

We all know that serious medical events like the one which recently impacted Miss Debra's life can conspire to make the work of getting well stressful. We want to help Miss Debra on her road to recovery as a way of saying "thank you" for all the times she made our lives better with just one "Hey baby!"

Please consider donating to Miss Debra's medical expense fund. Every bit will help, no amount is too small, and all will add up to one giant "thank you!" to a woman who in her own way, each and every day, made our shopping experience at Costco that much brighter.
