Community Service and Philanthropic Work

 

In 2018 we put a major emphasis on Community Service and Philanthropic work in our community.  Here is a summary of the projects we completed and the organizations we worked with. 

In addition to the projects below we also:

  • Donated to the Clemons Event Support Disaster Relief in Sebastopol which is operating a shelter in Clearlake for victims of the Mendocino Complex fires.  Our donation went towards purchasing and ship baby supplies.
  • We collected over 106 gently used pumps and large moving boxes and bags FULL of accessories for a breast pump drive for new mothers at a local hospital.

Together we can achieve so much!
