November Meeting: Saturday, November 14, 2015 at the Community & Family Life Recreation Center at Lyon Park, 1313 Halley Street, Durham 27707.
Topic/Guest Speaker: "A new direction to shift the life of a child, a family, a neighborhood in the Triangle area," presented by Nick Allen of the United Way of the Greater Triangle.
Our communities consistently rank nationally among the best places for lifestyle and for business but face invisible issues—hunger, poverty, homelessness, educational disparity.
The United Way of the Greater Triangle has committed to a new strategic plan that builds on a collaborative, solutions-based approach— to align all the seemingly disjointed services around a coordinated action plan and shared goals.
If you donate your time or money to local non-profits you'll learn how your investment could make a greater impact towards long-term, sustainable solutions.
