It was truly a night to remember and we appreciate those that helped share the evening with us. The night's festivities included highlights from community in-kind contributions, volunteer testimonials, a call to action and honoring those who have retired and volunteering for 20+ years.  As we celebrate and reflect upon our 25 years as an agency, we are truly grateful to those who give of their time to help those in need. Some of our honorees for the evening included:
