Welcome Baskets Program

Welcome Baskets 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. Click on their names to go directly to their web sites.
