#FlashbackFriday

Every holiday season we look for ways to get involved in the community and GIVE BACK. As a nonprofit agency, it is so important to get involved and pay it forward by helping others when we can.

We were able to donate 50+ toys to Family Service League's Project Toy toy drive.

Thank you to all of those staff members and supporters who helped us give back and support others in the Human Services sector. It means the world to us!
