December 2013 Profiles
With the holiday season upon us, this month we are featuring for-profit and nonprofit businesses who work to help better their communities and give back with our “Better to Give” theme.
These businesses help us all remember the spirit of giving this time of year and provide us all a chance to support local businesses AND give back to our communities at the same time.
