  • Do you feel angry and powerless as colleagues, bosses, or fellow board members don’t recognize your worth, but you still avoid conflict?
  • Are you and your employer on the same page in knowing and appreciating your full value within the company?

Support Our December Guest Host, Teamwork for Quality Living

There is something beautiful about giving. Each year during the December Luncheon, WIBU invites a local not-for-profit to join our meeting and share with our members their mission and their story. In the spirit of the holiday season, WIBU members are asked to bring a donation to support the featured non-for-profit. We have been absolutely amazed in the past by the generosity and heart we have found within our membership. This month, you will learn about Teamwork for Quality Living. Their mission is simple.

Empowering people in poverty toward self-sufficiency.

This month we ask that you consider participating in our gift drive for Teamwork for Quality Living. We are collecting small, unwrapped, gender-neutral gifts of up to $10 in value. These gifts will be made available to those who are currently working with Teamwork to transition out of poverty, allowing them the opportunity to pick a gift that they can give to another, and providing them the simple joy of giving during the holiday season.

Gifts are currently being collected at the Innovation Connector, 1208 W White River Blvd., to the attention of Pam Price. We ask that your donation be received by December 9.
