Tara Adds to the Communities We Serve
Since we started, part of our mission at Tara, has been to contribute to the improvement of our community. Volunteering and contributing money and resources to local organizations helped us connect to our community. In 2015 we were inspired to expand the community we support. That year, we experienced a serious flood that left many local residents and employees without shelter. The Red Cross responded as soon as it happened. They helped many in our community by providing food, shelter and support. We were overwhelmed by the speed, the organization and the range of services the Red Cross was able to provide. This event motivated us to want to contribute to their disaster relief efforts in the future so they could help others, like they helpded us.
