The November virtual happy hour featured a Thanksgiving inspired cooking demonstration by Inspiration Kitchens, a 2016 impact grant winner.  Inspiration Kitchens is providing meals to shelters and other organizations in need.

We had an inspiring October virtual happy hour hearing about the critical, impactful work St. Leonard’s Ministries and Rebuilding Exchange are doing.  If you’d like to be a part of that work, please checkout the Plaid Ball at Rebuilding Exchange. St. Leonard’s is looking for volunteer tutors.  Check their website for more information.
