Orange Grove Center, a nonprofit organization serving adults and children with developmental disabilities, recently hosted a neighborhood block party in celebration of our 60th year in service. The event was a huge success and would not have been possible without the generous amount of help and support from our neighbors at Memorial Hospital.

The staff at Memorial Hospital selflessly volunteered to take part in the celebration and collaborated with us to host a wonderful event for the community. Memorial Hospital has truly succeeded in living out their values of reverence, integrity, compassion and excellence.

We would also like to thank Sodexo for providing lunch, and for the other wonderful volunteers from the community who participated in our event.

Thank you for your collaboration, commitment and help with our 60th Anniversary Neighborhood Block Party.

Your Friends at Orange Grove
