In a District Council, committees are typically formed to focus on specific areas of the community’s needs, like development fundraising, or transportation. Each committee is made up of volunteers who are responsible for overseeing and implementing projects related to their designated area, reporting back to the larger board of directors on progress.
The Midway Project is an HMC sponsored group that provides food assistance to low-income individuals and families in the local community. By addressing food insecurity, this neighborhood food shelf brings much-needed relief and support to those struggling to put food on the table, fostering a stronger, healthier, and more equitable community.
