Giving Back to The Community 

As the seasons change and the holidays rapidly approach, we are reminded how fortunate we are to have the basic necessities of life that are too often taken for granted.  November is a wonderful time to reflect on all that one has to be thankful for, but it is also a great moment to volunteer one’s time to help the less fortunate. Below, is our list of organizations which are looking for assistance.
