How Will You Shine Your Light?

It’s been a dark year for many, so let’s shine some light this holiday season by coming together to volunteer with local nonprofits, contribute to gift drives and make financial donations. Together, we can brighten our communities across the region.

Make a Financial Donation

Make a financial gift today and help lift-up our neighbors who are struggling. Your donation will help some of the most vulnerable in our region: children, local foster youth, students impacted by COVID-19, and families fighting to make ends meet. In these difficult times, your gift can be that much-needed light in someone’s life.
