2021 IMPACT Report

We Moved it Forward

We told you we would move the mission forward – and we did.

“Moving the mission forward.” We said it many times over the last year. It was a promise you heard straight from our president, at our virtual events, and you even saw it in many of the videos we released on our social media platforms. As we near the end of 2021 – another year full of uncertainties amid of a global pandemic – we want you to know we held up our end of the deal.
