Often when the good works of charitable individuals and organizations are reported, the numbers and the dollar figures are what’s discussed. But, the real story lies with the real people these donations assist.

I got to talk to such a person when I had a nice phone conversation recently with Galveston’s Alan Jones, who, along with wife Crystabelle Rodriguez and son Alan Jones Jr., received some financial assistance from the Mike Evans Family Foundation.
