Donations

Donations are provided to local nonprofit organizations to support their environmental and educational efforts. These contributions allow other organizations to expand their horizons and foster collaboration at future events.

By the end of 2023, we had donated $1,250 to local organizations!

Community Service

Volunteer Hours are essential to any nonprofit’s purpose. Volunteers dedicate their time, talents, and energy to making a difference. They play crucial role in amplifying the nonprofit’s impact and mission, often inspiring others to get involved and support the cause.

As of the end of 2023, we’ve leveraged 410 hours of volunteer time!
