It’s a busy time of year for so many of us — at home, in our communities, on the job AND with our families. Here at SCAN,  we’ve been feeling the holiday hustle & bustle, too!

All the more reason to be grateful that the last couple of weeks have given us a number of opportunities to get together, gain perspective and give back. Today we’re sharing photos of some of the joy we’ve shared with the children and families in our programs, with our amazing volunteers and well beyond in the greater community.

We hope you enjoy your holiday season, and — along with these images of light and laughter from SCAN this December — send you warm wishes for health, peace and happiness!

We kicked off December with our Board Meeting, and haven't slowed down since...
