In May and June 2016 we have made several direct cash donations to local families dealing with cancer. This money is going to good use. Several recipients have called us, sent cards, and are so thankful for the help. Its a pretty big deal to them and it's pretty awesome for all of us to be a part of helping people in their time of crisis. Rhino on!
