We could not do what we do without community support, volunteers and donations. Here we are at the Apples and Crafts fair. Andrew and Ruth join the Giller Family selling donated apples from Maple Wood Farm.
Hypertherm has lots of volunteers that help Zack's Place in so many ways. Here they are at Maple Wood farm, they picked apples and organized them for the Apples and Crafts Fair. Hypertherm also helped paint the newly renovated Zack's Place.
Thank you!
