$11,450 IS OUR TOTAL DONATION FOR NEW FOUNDATION CENTER, OUR AWARD RECIPIENT FROM OUR NOVEMBER 12TH MEETING!
WHAT CAN HAPPEN WITH THE POWER OF COLLECTIVE GIVING?
When you donate $100 to a charity, you wonder if you're making a difference. But when 100 people donate $100 at the same time, they raise $10,000 for a worthy cause. That's impact. And it only takes an hour.
No volunteering, no telemarketing, no event planning, no silent auction donations to solicit. Simply a great way to give back right in our own community. Come join with us.
FIRST MEMBERSHIP MILESTONE REACHED!
We have exceeded out first milestone: 100+ members! Help us continue to grow our membership by inviting a friend to our next meeting. Expanding the group will help our collective donation to local charities continue to grow. In an effort to manage our membership support, we will only be accepting new individual members at this time. This does not affect current teams, who are welcome to continue as teams. If you have any questions about membership, or would like us to send information to prospective members, please feel free to contact Laurie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FAMILY SERVICES PRESENTATION
Paul Dean, a board member from Family Service, gave a brief presentation at our November 12th meeting thanking us for our donation. Family Service was awarded $9700 at our May 2013 meeting. He discusses how the money will be put to good use.
