Waking up Monday morning to news of the heinous act of violence the occurred in Las Vegas, left us in a state of disbelief. This past year has been a rough one. There are many things that are happening in our world that have made our hearts break. 

If you sometimes feel overwhelmed by this like we do, we’d like to take this time to share some organizations that may guide you if you want to help. This is a just a short list of some remarkable groups in our community bringing assistance to those who have been affected with tragedy. They may also be supportive in helping us to be proactive when thinking about how to give back to our communities.

Above all, while our nation is suffering from his tragic event in Vegas, we’d like to suggest kindness can go a long way. There's no time to hate when Mother Nature destroys areas of our country, there’s no time to hate when family members of victims need our shoulders to cry on, there is simply just no time to hate. 

United we stand, divided we fall: help your neighbor.
