  •  Newsworthy: We would like to thank the Feinstein Foundation for their generous donation given to us in response to our community's wonderful effort in the $1 Million Giveaway to Fight Hunger! And, a special thank you to all of our residents, groups, congregations, and schools who participated in this national anti hunger event!
