In our former working lives we were McDonald's franchisees. We are now retired and own a real estate management company which gives us the flexibility to pursue interests such as philanthropy, which is where Hands4Hope comes in.

Share with us why you choose to sponsor Hands4Hope - Youth Making A Difference.

Over the years we have been impressed with the mission and direction Hands4Hope has taken with their youth leadership and service programs. It is important for the youth of today to be involved in these programs such as community and homeless outreach, food collection and distribution so that they perpetuate these philanthropies. They must learn to lead and to serve the less fortunate and we feel Hands4Hope makes this possible. With the expansion of on-campus club programs Hands4Hope is engaging more and more youth to empower themselves to learn and to give in a way to make a difference to others. It is our hope that these invaluable leadership skills will be implemented by these young people throughout their lives.
