Giving and Gathering
As we embark on a season marked by giving and gathering, while the gathering side of things will undoubtedly look different this year, the giving most certainly doesn’t have to cease. Every story on each page of this issue has been hand-selected by our team to highlight the selfless ways local individuals and organizations give back to provide hope to our community and impact the world. In reality, there are too many stories to tell within the confines of one issue, and this is incredibly humbling. I invite you to read through each story (some are sure to shake you) and allow your heart to be inspired.
