The Foundation has given generously in the past, allowing us to increase our capacity through acquirement of equipment and implementation of new programs.The Foundation has supported not only us, but so many nonprofits in our area. They not only provide us opportunities for the vision of a better community, but give us their support as we respond to the needs of our clients. On March 15, the Foundation organized the Call to Action campaign and successfully raised over $115,000 to assist individuals and families who are experiencing financial difficulties in these tough economic times. The community that we live in has been generous as well. Without this support, none of us, including the Foundation, could exist.
