I would like to commend you on the outstanding editorial in the Sun-Gazette regarding the merger between Hope Enterprises, Inc. and the Children's Development Center.
You are absolutely correct in asserting what a great merger this will be for the individuals with special needs. The jointure will allow the extension of their combined services to disability needs within the community as well as the greater Susquehanna Valley.
Having the opportunity to be a part of this merger was a tremendously rewarding experience for all the individuals involved. Their exemplary effort brings true meaning to being a volunteer: "A person whose dedication to a cause or organization inspires others to give of themselves"
I would be remiss if there was not a big heartwarming thank you given to everyone who participated in this merger between Hope Enterprises, Inc & the Children's Development Center.
