Every day, we have a choice. When you read the headlines or turn on the news, when you scroll through your social media feed, it is easy to think that the negatives far outweigh the positives, that the common bonds that hold us together – compassion, respect, shared responsibility, a belief in service, and a willingness to embrace our differences – are a fading memory of a distant past. But that is not the reality we see in our local communities each day.
Our story is one of positive impact. Of neighbors helping neighbors improve the quality of life for all through the arts, education, human services, animal welfare, the environment, heritage enhancements, and more. Of business owners coming together to help our youth develop life skills and overcome adversity. Of volunteers providing food and transportation assistance to those in need. Of community members supporting their passion and providing financial resources so that everyone, regardless of income, age, or ability, has the opportunity for a better today, and a better tomorrow.
