THANK YOU TO NEEMS

Region 3 HMCC staff would like to send a heartfelt “THANK YOU” to Executive Director Jonathan Brickett for the “in-kind” contribution to the HMCC office. Recently donated items included a work desk, filing cabinets, and office chair. These items were donated as NEEMS begins their move to new office space according to Planning and Operations Coordinator James Richardson. Building partnerships and relationships within the disciplines of the HMCC have both indirect and direct benefits to all!!

Thanks again and best of luck in the new office Jon.
