“The greatest impact Delivering Good can make is by assisting families in need through our local partners. The positive force of families, whether born or chosen, can lay a solid foundation for a person to achieve their dreams,” stated Downing.

The evening’s theme The Power of Family, truly presented what this non profit is all about by bringing real life stories of once at-risk children, families and individuals who were positively impacted by the great work of the organization and its honorees. Delivering good changed their lives forever and now, through Delivering Good hey continue to help others.
