  • HSVTC Donations- April Update from Rick

    Donations
    We are at $7,800 of our $10,000 goal. Eric Hansen’s offer to match up to $5,000 in donated funds has been taken up by a number of people. Since my last e-mail the Janet and Warren Sargent, Bob Geerts and James Opplinger have donated $950 matched by Dr. Hansen that is $1900. Great job these donations mean a lot to the Trail Crew. The matching funds are still a great option as well. We are now signed up with Bank of America, Patagonia, and Boeing If you work for any of these companies or your company offers matching donations to the organization you choose please consider HSVTC. This is a great way to double and right now it would be quadrupling your donation.
