Action Book Clubs

What is an Action Book Club and why all the excitement? In a new twist on the traditional book club, the Little Free Library invites participants to read books on timely topics, engage in lively discussions, and take part in meaningful and fun group service projects to benefit their communities. This is reading and social engagement at its best.

Volunteering 101

Charity Connect Founder and CEO, Cristin Caine, explains how volunteers who feel like a valued part of your organization will organically want to give money, in-kind donations, and connections. A little extra investment, in the beginning, will pay off in the end. If you invest some time and energy into each and every volunteer that comes to your doorstep, at least one of them is bound to become your MVP.
