During the giveaway, there were many heartfelt moments, but Mrs. Meyers recalled one moment in particular that she will never forget. “After receiving the gift card, one individual told us that we saved his life,” said President and CEO of JLAN Solutions, Ronnette Meyers. “My heart was so full after hearing those words. I am inspired to keep giving and to encourage others to do the same.”
