Nonprofits Shine in Summer
Several years ago I compiled a list of all the summer activities planned for kids by nonprofit organizations. Not surprisingly, the list was long. Thank you for providing these "extra" opportunities while the kids are on summer break. Our community appreciates your dedication this summer and all year long!

Stay connected,
