to Commemorate 20th Anniversary

AmeriCorps Seniors (ACS) is partnering with multiple community organizations to unify and educate the community. “I am proud to be able to work alongside these great people and organizations to make Kingman stronger and more connected. 9/11 is a very significant day in many of our lives.
