City of Hope
Between 2002 and 2017, HON raised more than $5.2 million for the City of Hope, a global leader in the fight against cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. In 2017, HON presented City of Hope with a check for $650.000, the largest annual contribution we have ever made to City of Hope.
Our support of the annual United Way Day of Caring in Muscatine, IA regularly sets participation records. A majority of HON members contribute a portion of their earnings through our United Way campaign.
Empowered to Serve
HON members serve on boards of directors or advisory boards for numerous organizations including the United Way, City of Hope, Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers/Big Sisters and area chambers of commerce.
Occupation: Customer Support
Many shelters lack resources and staff to take a good quality photo of their animals up for adoption which may result in the pets being overlooked. By providing professional, fun and creative photos, they catch the eye of potential adopters. Over the last four years, Veronica has taken over 1,000 photos and her love for animals drives her to continue doing what she does.
“I have been volunteering at the Humane Society of Scott County for 4 years as a shelter photographer. I hold a special place in my heart for homeless and displaced animals.”
