WWBC NOVEMBER NETWORKING MEETING: GIVING BACK IN OUR COMMUNITY

At the November 2018 Networking Event, we learned about giving back in our community.
Great thanks to our guest speakers today, Judy Newcomb and Nicole Merrill Bottai from Windham's Helping Hands, and Diane Ramos Carpenter from the Windham Endowment for Community Advancement. We learned about some of the wonderful organizations who are working tirelessly in our community to help expand horizons and provide relief. It's very heartwarming to see the work that is being done locally by our neighbors for our neighbors. Stay tuned for more information about how the WWBC will be supporting these and other organizations this holiday season.
