News from Charity Connect
Day of Service
Charity Connect partnered with the McLean School of Potomac, Maryland for a Day of Service. The day included 400 students and 50 staff volunteering at 11 organizations. In total, they provided 1,600 hours of community service — in one day.
Bikes for the World
Charity Connect partners with Bikes for the World in a shared commitment to providing service projects that not only promote social and environmental awareness, but also to educated our volunteers about issues around the world.
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.
Kids already have all the superpowers to be great volunteers. They are energetic, empathetic, responsible, and creative. They just need to be engaged. Charity Connect’s job is to create the opportunity and environment that will utilize all the strengths our kids have. Charity Connect and our awesome nonprofit partners provide the perfect phone booth for Clark Kent to become Superman.
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.
So What Else
We are so honored to have our founder and CEO, Cristin Caine, (shown here with her husband Brian), be given such an awesome shout out from So What Else. Charity Connect and So What Else have had a strong partnership for over two years and the impact they are both making on the community is powerful! Way to go Cristin!
