Our community outreach program is devoted to helping our community’s local non-profit organizations …groups that have small budgets and big hearts. We love to work with motivated, innovative groups who strive to make the world a better place! We stand by groups with values similar to our own. We’re especially interested in environmental issues, building a strong community, making health a priority, supporting organic farming, and educating both adults and kids about these things.
Learn more about upcoming events we’re donating to and the amazing organizations that put them together. And please keep in mind that we do require requests to come in at least 30 days prior to an event. Thanks for thinking of us!
