Please check out these organizations to learn about what they do to help our community and also learn ways that you can help!
We want to start off by thanking all of our members that came out to support some of our local non profit organizations. We are extremely blessed to be associated with a great group of guys! We also want to send a huge thank you to the organizations that came to speak to us at the meeting. Camp Able,the Joseph Thomas Foundation,andConnecting Caring Communities are all wonderful organizations that do wonderful work here in our community! It was an honor to hear representatives from all three organizations and we look forward to continuing a long relationship with each one of you. Only one organization comes away with a donation each meeting, but we know that as we grow as a group that each non profit will get donations in time.
We were so proud to award a $9,000 Donation to Camp Able at the meeting! The results of the voting were very close. We know that Renee and the crew will be able to put this money to good use. If you haven't heard of the amazing work they do at Camp Able, I suggest you check them out!
Apart from listening to our selected non profit organizations, we briefly discussed our 4th quarter meeting. You will all get emails regarding the charities that will be voted on at a later date. What was decided upon was that we will do a Toy Drive along with our donation. If you can, please bring at least 1 unwrapped toy and we will donate those to a local charity. As of right now, the NEXT MEETING looks to be November 29th. This date is not set in stone and we will keep you all posted.
Please take time to visit the websites of the organizations that met with us. They all do tremendous work throughout the community and there are ample ways that we can assist each one. We will be meeting with these groups again. IF you are interested in any volunteer effort with these groups, please contact them. They would love to have you.
