We love helping our patrons and donors, and never expect anything in return for the assistance we provide to so many people. However, over the weekend we received a box of cherries as a thanks for what we do. So kind and unexpected...we will enjoy this summer treat! #uwmadison #uwmadarchives #payitforward
