Enriching our Community Through Vision and Volunteerism

The retreat this year included team building activities and personality tests as well as being broken into five groups to each choose a non-profit to support throughout 2018.

For the past x years, local non-profits are reviewed and each team chooses one to support through volunteer hours, driving awareness to said charity and holding a fundraising event. Non-profits that will be supported this year are:

  • FAST (Family Autism Support Team) – The mission of FAST is as follows: Providing support and information to families impacted by ASD.
