29th Caroling Event with Community of Hope

Thank you to the many volunteers, participants, and donors who made the 29th caroling event with families from the Community of Hope a BIG success. The homeless families were wonderful with the elderly in the nursing home. We cannot thank our donors and volunteers enough for their outpouring of generosity and support for these children and adults experiencing a rough patch of life. The families were very grateful for the experience of the day and for the many gifts they received. We are thankful and proud to partner with Community of Hope for this annual tradition.
