Welcome Basket Program

Since 1999, SHCA has been welcoming new first-time homeowners to the neighborhood with a valuable gift: The Welcome Basket. The basket includes neighborhood information, fresh food, and gift certificates to area theaters, restaurants, shops, services, and museums. All of the contents are donated by area businesses and organizations. We are grateful for their contributions.
