“HIP was recommended to me by one of my coworkers here at Alpha as a great volunteer opportunity for my clients and it truly has been a wonderful experience for them. HIP is making valuable contributions to the community and the volunteer experience itself is always warm and welcoming for all who participate. We’re honored to be a part of it.”
