Give Jefferson Happy Hour
Wednesday, Dec. 4, 5:30-6:30 pm
Do you care about maintaining the human services safety net in Jefferson County? Do you enjoy a cold adult beverage after a hard day's work? If the answer to both of these questions is "Absolutely yes!!!", then you should come learn about Give Jefferson, this year’s United Good Neighbors (UGN) annual campaign. We'll have a cocktail hour in The CoLab's main coworking space from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 4th, with a brief presentation about Give Jefferson. This will include the work of two home-grown service organizations:
- Olympic Angels, which matches dedicated groups of volunteers with families doing the hard work of fostering, to walk alongside them for the long term and provide healing through consistent human connection.
- Olympic Neighbors, which serves people with developmental disabilities and their families by providing safe, affordable housing and staff support so residents can thrive in the local community.
Through Give Jefferson you can support more than 30 nonprofits who provide basic human needs in our county, where 1/5 of families live below the poverty line. Many of the organizations that offer crucial safety net services depend on your Give Jefferson support to continue their work.
Please come for the discussion, invite your friends, and help make sure we can take care of all our people here locally in 2020.
