      Hi there! My name is Jen Doll & I am the Marketing Director for Twilight Haven. We are a non-profit Senior community, that cares for our aging loved ones that don’t have friends or family & are low to no income.
      We are hoping to make it snow here at Twilight in January, to brighten the spirits of our Seniors, and we don’t know how to make that happen, I was wondering if you or someone you know could help us with that?
