First, thank you for your interest in helping our program. The July 4th Week is our time to be seen by the community and share what we do. These are important outreach and fundraising activities and we can use all the help we can get.
Second, we do what we do in order to offer something unique to our community. Participating in the biggest community events of the year is one way we seek to be connected to that wider community.
Third, we can’t do without you. Your support allows us to continue doing what we do all year long.
