WE SHARE – WE CARE
QCNC faced another challenging year of zoom meetings, masks, hand-sanitizers and distancing as we worked together to help meet the needs of those in our community. Our members, 26 strong and dedicated, are committed to making a positive difference in Northern Colorado while observing the Covid-19 guidelines and restrictions.
