PROJECTS & EVENTS
I will be adding more information to this page once we get closer to completing projects and dates have been finalized. For the meantime, the projects I have planned include:
A Rise Against Hunger Event (formerly known as Stop Hunger Now)
The building of a Little Library with global content to stretch our audience out into our community.
A river & trail clean up in Pisgah National Forest to preserve our waters and lands for the generations that follow us.
More information on specific events will be sent out shortly.
Global Action Days:
There are certain days throughout the year that have been adopted as a 'holiday' of sorts. Examples of these include: International Day of the Girl, Global Youth Service Day, and International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
