We are grateful for all the support shown to HVOV during the recent 24 hours of non-profit giving.

Our Village had the most successful Do More 24 Delaware event in our history. The proceeds are imperative towards

continuing to fulfill our mission and remain viable as an all-volunteer non-profit organization. Be on the lookout

for several Dine & Donate events to come in April and November at two favorite local restaurants. Come join us!
