Happy Holidays!

As the year draws to a close, and the frenzy begins to subside, we hope you will take the time to stop and notice the little things that make this life so rich: warm conversations when you call to wish donors happy holidays; holiday cheer with colleagues; lights that brighten our path in the darkest time of the year; the smell of fresh baked cookies; cozy chats with family and friends; the wonder of children. It’s all wrapped up in what we do every day for our organizations. Cheers to all of you for a wonderful 2020!
