A thank you from SPARC, one of the groups that share our building:

We are so grateful for the special arrangements you have made possible through use of your facility for SPARC’s children and adults with developmental disabilities. The therapeutic and social programs they receive are not otherwise available in their lives. Your group has made an impact in improving quality of life experiences for others and it is deeply appreciated.
