Area Nonprofits Have Opportunity to Meet Potential Volunteers, Collaborators at Chamber’s Inaugural Mixer with Nonprofits

Representatives from area nonprofit organizations (and a few from outside Columbia and Montour Counties as well) had an opportunity to meet and interact with potential volunteers and future board members at the Chamber’s inaugural Mixer with Nonprofits on Aug. 28, held at Maria Joseph Continuing Care Community’s Meadows Community Center in Danville. This event, which the Chamber anticipates will likely become an annual event, was open to the public and anyone that was interested in learning more about the many nonprofits in our community, their work and mission, and their needs. 

Attendees had an opportunity to enjoy hors d’oeuvres prepared by Maria Joseph’s food services staff, as well as beer from Turkey Hill Brewing and wine provided by the Susquehanna Heartland Wine Trail. Prior to the event, the 2019-20 Leadership Central Penn class, a program of the Foundation of the Columbia Montour Chamber, held its orientation program, and class members were then able to meet with several of the nonprofits that attended the event to learn more about them and get ideas for which one to pick for their service projects. The LCP class is annually divided into small groups of 4-5 individuals, all of which must complete an eight-hour service project for a nonprofit of their choosing. 

Thank you for the 29 nonprofit organizations that attended this event.
