Welcome to a new year of Net-Working It! for a Cause. We kicked off 2020 with
Batavia RSVP, Inc.
as our charity spotlight partner. More than 50 people enjoyed Pal Joey’s delicious pizza and wings, while making new acquaintances or renewing previous business friendships.
While we networked, several board members from RSVP told us about how the all-volunteer nonprofit provides services to Batavia residents age 65 and above. Their goal is to help seniors live independently and to maintain as high of a quality of life as possible. RSVP is always looking for volunteers – especially those who can drive seniors to doctor appointments during the day. Call (630) 406-9993 to learn more.
A big thank you to our attendees - with your help we raised $415 for our partner charity! Thank you, too, to John Hamel and Pal Joey’s for graciously hosting us.
Net-Working It! for a Cause inspires more giving…
Moose International and Moose Charities employees learned about Marklund at our September 2019 Net-Working It! at My Place Hotel. They were so impressed with the nonprofit that they chose it to be their community service recipient for the months of November and December 2019. Their efforts netted a $1,562.75 for Marklund!
According to Janet Corah and Dan McGuffin of the Moose International Community Service Committee, their giving program began in April 2016. Every two months the committee selects a worthy charitable mission that the employees may donate to in exchange for employee perks. Since December of 2014, over $44,000 and numerous wish list items have been given to 38 different recipients. Well done!
