We want to thank all the groups that submitted applications for funding. This decision was not easy as we would love to support them all. We feel that it is important to let all applicants know that their work is highly regarded by our group. Most of the organizations requesting financial assistance are operated through volunteers or with the assistance of volunteers. We know how much work that is and how dedicated these people are. It is that type of work and dedication that makes our community strong and special.
Thank you once again and best of luck with your fundraising campaigns.
