Tree of Light and Remembrance

Thank you all for your generous support to illuminate our Tree of Light and Remembrance. All the proceeds go directly to the Food Shelf.

We raised over $11,000 which will go towards our immediate needs and giving our families an extra special Christmas.

Because of the COVID-19 restrictions we were not able to have the ceremony in person. Below is the link to watch the ceremony.
