"Neighbors helping Neighbors" is not just our tagline. We might live right next door, or down the street. We're there in line next to you at the deli counter or the gas pump. Our kids might be on the same team, or in the same classroom. We are an integral part of this community. We are Nurses, Doctors, Business Owners and Managers, Stay at Home Moms and Dads, Teachers, Trades People, Psychologists, and High school and College Students. What we have in common is that we all volunteer to be there when someone needs our help.
