“It’s great that you can support where you live in so many different ways through the Foundation. It’s important to build strong communities because it’s true that it takes a whole community to help raise a family.”

Kirk Robinson has served on our board for 12 years and today is the last meeting of his term. We wanted to properly thank him for his service with a few of his favorites. Some of you may know that Kirk has a toy cereal collection for the books! Seriously, there have been articles written about it...

So here is to you, Kirk! Thank you. We have appreciated your efforts as a board member.
