It is our desire to partner with and support organizations that share our similar goals on projects that enhance communities and the nation. The groups and businesses shown here are those who inspire us and support what we are doing; likewise, we recognize and support them in their efforts. The Friends of the Foundation are our advocates, and we are theirs. We promote one another because we have similar goals and shared visions. Friends of the Foundation support us in various ways; by sharing information with others about us, through donations, sponsorship or by volunteering time. We are making connections to help one another reach higher and do more.  And we thank all of them for believing and investing in our cause.
