Do You Want To Volunteer, or Donate? Maybe You Need Help Yourself.

We are a wonderful, supportive, community and we have so many places to volunteer and support this holiday season. If you haven't chosen a group to support this season please consider helping one of these resources.

We pick a charity each year to help. I think it really helps educate and foster a sense of empathy.  We have a few here but there are so many wonderful places there truly isn't a way to list them all. 

We also know that times are hard for many people and that so many need assistance right now. 

Take the help you need and give the help if you can.
