We are so grateful for every one of our members. It is through your support that we are able to continue adding value to our community through our amazing programs.
We are so proud of our member programs and how they have kept their chins up throughout this pandemic. While concerts, the Dark Sky Festival, and Leadership Academy had to be cancelled, we also saw some innovative ideas come out of this that will keep us on a good path for 2021.
This year, we awarded a $1,000 scholarship through the Golden Eagle Education Foundation. The recipient, Austin Johnson, was an honor student with over 200 volunteer hours. He is attending Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
We also added some new programs to our roster, built a new website, and have connected with other nonprofits in the community. One of those programs was Encore for More!, formerly Senior Services, Inc. Think Bingo, Home Delivered Meals, Technology Learning Center, New Adventures, and so much more. We heartily welcome them to FHCCA.
As our programs have grown and their website needs have expanded, we realized that we were due for a new website. We spent all Fall working with a web designer to create exactly what weach program needs. We even added a new feature…this blog! We hope that you bookmark the website and blog and visit often.
Another new program that was introduced in 2020 was the Nonprofit Network. This program was created to bring together local nonprofit leaders and volunteers to share ideas, challenges, and solutions, and of course, networking. Members are also offered access to an innovative online auction software for fundraising called GiveSmart. This was first put to use during the recent Flutter event.
Your membership is the foundation we rely on to continue providing services to so many of your favorite and loved programs and organziations.
