Celebrating Our First Ten Months!

Since we began in August, Social4Good has operated with six Rules of Engagement and created opportunities to support the organizations that make our community stronger.  

Whether meeting in a member's home or hosting zoom happy hours, we have inspired members to collectively make a difference.  

As we move forward in these uncertain times, Social4Good is intentionally supporting those organizations that are meeting basic and critical needs.  Watch this space for projects for June, July and August.
