I love to visit the Laurel Highlands, especially in the winter. The air is so clean over the snow.
I realize that this environment is being threatened by our bad habits.
We desperately need an organization like PennFuture to help us live well.
My PennFuture coworkers make up the overall smartest group with which I've ever worked. I'm awed every day and have stayed with PennFuture longer than I've worked with any other organization. I honestly believe we're doing good work and we all really care about the work we do.
PennFuture is the most effective and hard-hitting environmental organization in Pennsylvania. PennFuture focuses on delivering on its promises and in telling our citizens the truth. Consequently, I choose to donate my hard-earned dollars back into the organization.
Penn Future for us has created a state wide awareness of environmental issues and progresses and brought those issues home on a local level to North Central Pennsylvania, often a forgotten part of the state.
