Toward the end of every year, the BHNA looks for ways to help our local community. This year, the Board focused on the impacts to families in our area in regard to the cost of living, housing, and the resultant stresses. With that focus, it was decided that donations would be made to two organizations which are incredibly important to our city.
At our November General Meeting, donations were proudly presented to the Police Activities League and CORA (Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse). The PAL provides recreational, educational, and leisure activities at little or no cost to thousands of San Mateo
youth, seeking to build a stronger and safer community. CORA has worked since the 1970’s to provide safety and support for families impacted by domestic violence though education, intervention, legal services and outreach.
The BHNA presented these donations to San Mateo Police Chief Susan Manheimer, Police Activities League Fund Development Director, Lisa Tartaglia, and CORA’s Director of Development, Lynn Engel.
