Charitable Organizations  

There are numerous ways to be a positive influence in the local community; giving your time or donating dollars to those in need, the work you do or just by being a friendly positive and caring person on a day to day basis. i believe giving back in your own way is an important part in living a meaningful and happy life.Thank you for all that you do to help.
