A proud supporter of local charities, The Hometown Foundation, Inc., is a champion of community engagement. We proudly support a wide array of community-focused events and organizations throughout the year. For instance, we provide meals to the hungry, collect toys for underserved children, distribute gift bags to our military and donate police K-9s to several police departments.
