January 2012 Y's Words

As winter settles in, the sun fades to a golden hue, the days become colder, and the nights appear longer. It’s a good time for fireplaces, soups and hot chocolate, but also to be involved with your community. So make that hot chocolate to go, and visit us at ywca clark county.

ywca has volunteer opportunities available all winter long and welcomes you to a free Introduction to Volunteering class on January 10th at 6:00pm. Not sure you’re up for it? Learn more by reading one volunteer’s experience in this month’s newsletter.  Also in this issue, you can learn about our Public Policy Committee’s interest in immigration, our award winning staff, and our “fund-a-room” program initiated by the Schwab Foundation. At ywca clark county, we know community support comes from all directions. See the article on holiday giving to witness how your valiant efforts are making a difference.

While we have many successes to share, we continue to face possible budget reductions due to government cuts. The numbers won’t be clear until later this year, but staff and the board of directors have been working hard to prepare for any and all challenges that may come our way. You can help too. Support ywca clark county with your time, your voice or your dollar, and know that your efforts are changing the lives of your neighbors, your friends, your family and your community. Be warm this winter, not just in your home, but in your heart.

Strong Alone.  Fearless Together.
