Shedding light on those that help us right here in our communities each day. You never know if you or someone you know will ever need these services. It’s nice to put a face and organization behind all the amazing work these nonprofits do selflessly every day. At the very least we want to make sure they know; WE CARE about what they do!
Thank you for your continued support, Executive Director Lori Golding Zontini
