Helping Hands For Nonprofit Friends logo

Community support is a core value of ours.

Helping Hands is designed to aid nonprofit organizations in their quest to create lasting impressions.

We could all use a little help from our friends.

We hope the Helping Hands Fund of $10,000 in-kind services we have established will help our local organizations and associations leave their mark in our community through increased awareness and visibility. We challenge each of you to use these marketing services awards to build a better community, one helping hand at a time.
