We could not have done it without you. You have made an difference in your community with kindness and caring. THANK YOU!
Merriam-Webster defines the following:
dare /der/ - having the courage to do something
care /ker/- doing what is necessary for the health, welfare, maintenance, and protection of someone or something.
Nine years ago Hooktown Holidays was founded in February. The idea for the three founders was to donate $2 per week for the balance of the year and use the donated funds to assist someone in need in our community. Because the founding group dared to care and reach out to the invisible, the news spread and others joined the cause and $5,000 was donated by year end.
You, our wonderful supporter, dared to care and the result is over$160,000 donated back into our community to date!
