Mattie’s Champions 2011

Posted on: April 22nd, 2012 by jeni No Comments


In 2011, the Foundation Board developed plans for new outreach activities and events, including our “Pathways to Peace” program. This endeavor includes materials and activities for children, for teens, and for adults. We also added new incentives to our giving program, as well as Partnership and Messenger Programs, for organizations and businesses that want to collaborate with us in peace efforts.
