February 2022
Thank you for loving your community
Nonprofits in all sectors in Linn County have at least one thing in common...we love our communities. As we enter the month of celebrating love and friendship, let us take time to reach out to be inclusive to all of our neighbors and colleagues. Seek out ways to honor and celebrate Black History Month. Inclusive ICR meets on February 17; click here to find out how to get involved. Connect with your community this month!
