Key Neighbors Making a Difference

HEFC would like to recognize several individuals who made improvements to the Center, in the form of fresh coats of paint on the reception area walls, on May 22, 2013. The Center was one of the sites included in the Key Neighbors Make a Difference Day event. Site Manager Steve Casselman shared that "the organization was in (his) neighborhood and seemed like a worthy organization to contribute to". Joining Steve in this gift of time and effort were Ellen Shefner and Dave J. McLaughlin.

A big THANK YOU to Steve, Ellen and Dave for their generosity!
