Thank you to DCH Milford for supporting our Hope for Heroes Donation Drive. Without the support of local businesses we would not be able to all that we do.

Dale Kurtz, Veterans Agent in Franklin MA and Michael Shain, Thanks To Yanks, will distribute gift cards which will go to military families that are having financial challenges. A small way to help make the holidays a little brighter.

    • Fundraising volunteers for our 2019 Dance and Silent Auction
  • Legal advisor to the Board

A little time and dedication can go a long way at our events. Please contact all opportunities.
