‘Tis the Season – Each year SBN helps community programs and nonprofit organizations by volunteering where we are needed. “Many hands make light work” as they say and with more than two dozen, a lot can be accomplished. This morning at the SBN meeting Janice Doll gave a presentation about the Giving Angles organization and how the SBN can help senior citizens in need. SBN is scheduled to pack, sort and wrap gift bags on the 10th of December from 1-4 pm. SBN would also like to get a group donation together as a whole and individual SBN members are encouraged to donate as well. If you are able to volunteer during this time, please let us know. This is a great opportunity to help out senior citizens in need and give back to our community especially during the holidays.
We donate all year to the Verde Valley Food Bank and join Mitzvah Day volunteers as well as dedicate a day at Rusty’s Morningstar Ranch for Autistic Adults. We’ll also be manning a Water Station for the Sedona Marathon. Join us for great camaraderie, friendly banter and lively discussion each week. Most importantly we want the opportunity to refer your business to our sphere of influence.
