Need comes in a variety of forms. Today there is no lack of wonderful organizations that are doing truly amazing things within our local communities, the region and the world. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed and helpless in our desire to help, volunteer, donate, or support organizations that are requesting even a small amount to help their individual causes.
Understanding that there are critical needs all around us, our focus has been to support in some way organizations we know through events that have touched us personally, or through trusted business relationships. We haven’t limited ourselves to one cause, but hope to deliver support in the way of volunteering, donations, or some other support where we can. We hope the result will be at least to raise awareness for a variety of local and national nonprofits that support people with disabilities, veterans employment, animal and marine welfare, and environmental causes. We believe we are all connected and ultimately dependent on one another.
Here are some of the causes we have supported through donation, volunteering, or other support, and their links:
