Virginia began working at Just Say Something as a volunteer but eventually became a full-time employee. Sometimes people work for an organization or a business with dissimilar views.

Candy is our go-to-person who provides all of us with direction on what we need for programs and where to find it. Whether it is a staff member preparing for a program, a community partner in need of material, or the general public in need of Red Ribbon supplies, Candy with no hesitation graciously provides and keeps track of the chaos we sometimes produce.
Candy gets up every morning to go for a several mile walk so she can enjoy this beautiful city we live in. She also loves to spend time with her children and grandchildren who all love to run and get outside.
