In lieu of CHFA’s annual David W. Herlinger Golf Tournament, CHFA held Drive it Home for Mt. Carmel, a virtual donation drive, to raise money for Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center. Mt. Carmel provides wraparound services and resources for military, veterans, and their families, including employment and transition services, and behavioral health counseling and wellness programs.
