First Nonprofit Foundation awarded $10,000 to OHEL Children’s Home and Family Services, based in Brooklyn, New York, to host a day of giving back at its DayHab program. OHEL participants worked with volunteer employees from Mutual of America to package holiday gift bags for delivery for the Gifts At Work program.
