We are thrilled to be celebrating our 75th anniversary in 2016. What started with eleven volunteers, four agencies, an $80,000 campaign, and one staff person, has grown to thousands of volunteers and supporters, a network of community partners, year-round fundraising of $5 million and a skilled staff team. As we celebrate this milestone, I invite you to join me in a journey of remembering our past, celebrating our present, and looking forward to our future.
