Dennis and Sherri Hironaka Give Back to the Community

3aWe have been very fortunate. We had meaningful careers and now have the resources and good health to do many of the things we’ve wanted to do as retirees – mostly, that includes spending time with family (think: grandchildren) and friends. But it also includes the opportunity to give back to a community we love. There are certain things we especially care about in this community and when it came time to sit down and think about what we want to leave as a legacy, the Relief Nursery was among those Treasure Valley causes we want to support even after we’re gone.

We regularly give to TVCRN, whether it’s bringing a case of paper towels to their Stuff the Bus event, or donating during their year-end campaign. We believe that this organization is truly helping others, and we were in public education long enough to know that many, many families need help and if they’d only received it sooner, maybe their children could have avoided some of their struggles in school.

We don’t plan on going anywhere soon, but we love the thought of helping struggling families – even after we’re gone.
