November 2019 Eat and Chat
Here's a summary of the information shared at our Eat and Chats this week:
greeNest is the recipient of 2 grants! 1) we have received money from the Lovett Grant to replace the awnings and paint our logo on the side of the building 2) we have been notified that we will get funding from BB&T for our Up Off the Floor program!
We have 5 new Partnering Agencies: Winston Salem Street School, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, St Paul's Episcopal Church, Imprints Cares and Word of God Church. Woot woot!
Website - I have been making some slight changes to our website. Specifically, I have added a "Volunteer News" section. There is a calendar there that lets you know when "clients" are coming, "Eat and Chat" dates and other events. I would love your input on what else you'd like to see!
Sign Up Genius is also on that Volunteer page. We really need everyone to use Sign Up Genius, especially as we are gearing up for the holidays and our Dewey's store. We need to know who’s going to be at the Nest on our donation days.
Speaking of Dewey’s... Opening Day is ONE WEEK from today, Friday 11/15!
I have sent the Sign Up Genius out. If you did not get it, but want to be included in the Dewey's Holiday Store, let me know.
We will Clean Up on Monday 11/11 and then Set Up on Tuesday 11/12 from 9:00am - 11:00am both days. Carole and Karen will provide all the cleaning materials.
Several of you have already signed up for that (THANK YOU!!) But, we still need SUV drivers to bring greeNest merchandise to Dewey's and help unload it Tuesday.
We will have our Orientation/Preview Party on Thursday 11/14 @ 6:00pm at Dewey's. This will be a fun night! I promise to not talk too long!
December Fun! Joanna and Jan will host us for a Potluck Dinner Party on Wednesday 12/11 @ 6:00pm. You are welcome to bring your significant other! More information will be sent at a later date.
As always, we appreciate each of you and everything that you do on behalf of greeNest!
