Today is the last day of our Acts of Community series. Your annual contribution will play an integral part in strengthening our community. Since program fees only cover about 80% of our expenses, financial support from individual donors is critical. Thanks to all of you who have contributed to our Annual Fund! If you haven't yet, you still have time. Please consider supporting us in 2017 in honor of an Act of Community that has touched your life: http://bit.ly/donate-to-ABC
