Change comes when people advance causes they believe in. Real, sustainable community improvement requires the support of committed people. This year we are excited to introduce our new “Golden Gift Page”. These Golden Gifts shared from each organization are clear, ambitious, and attainable — but only with your support.
Boys & Girls Club
A Place to Chill
It’s hot in the summer, and the kids at our Eastside Branch need a place to chill.
