HAPPY NEW YEAR!
In 2018, every one of you did a lot of awesome things. Maybe you volunteered, helped support family and friends in need, donated food or money, donated blood, or just served as an uplifting presence to those around you whenever you could. You made a unique, positive impact. It mattered.
We’re ready for another amazing year. Thank you for the difference you will continue to make in the world. We hope you’ll join us for some great opportunities in 2019 to serve together. Together, our impact is so much greater.
