Friday, December 2nd
Come one, come all Shaping Clay members to join us for the last Shaping Clay meeting for 2016. We’ll meet at St. Vincent’s in Middleburg from 8:30 – 10:00 a.m. There will be no heavy discussion, just networking and the opportunity for those who wish to share highlights about your organization’s accomplishments during the year.
If there is any confusion, for those who missed the May meeting, we decided to more clearly define the mission and goals of Clay’s two nonprofit networks – The Clay SafetyNet Alliance and Shaping Clay. We looked to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs for a model.
The Clay SafetyNet Alliance (previously known as the Mercy Network) is to expand the platform of committed partners among faith-based, nonprofit, for-profit and local government organizations. This network meets regularly (the third Thursday of the month) in order to share resources, avoid duplication of effort, and find solutions to issues facing our community. It focuses on strengthening a safety net for those in need of social services.
– Arrive by 8:15 to purchase your own refreshments at the St. Vincent’s cafe, then walk down the hall to the meeting.
– A $2 donation at the door helps to cover website and marketing costs.
