April 2014 Nonprofit Partner:
MissionCute has partnered with Girlfriends Giving Circle of Southern California for the month of April! Your contribution and subscription has gone towards helping this amazing group of women make a positive impact in their community! Giving Circles are groups of individuals who come together to give their time and resources to those in need. Whether it is through donations or volunteer work, Giving Circles are making a huge impact on communities across the nation, much like our April Nonprofit Partner!
Girlfriends Giving Circle of Southern California is newly founded in February 2014. GGC brings together friends that desire to make a positive difference in our community through service, fundraising and providing resources needed.
In a few short months our calendar has filled up giving the Circle opportunities to help our community. We are looking forward to cooking meals for Ronald McDonald House in Orange and Pasadena California. We are hosting a Bunco fundraiser in May, those funds will go to our Back to School Backpack Blessing Bags Project. We will provide new backpacks and school supplies for children in Santa Ana Unified School District and Corona Unified School District. We will be volunteering at Operation Safehouse in Riverside by hosting pizza & ice cream games nights for the teens who reside there. These are just a few that the Girlfriends Giving Circle have planned for 2014.
Our First service project that we are very proud of is our Blessing Bags for the homeless communities in Santa Ana....and Pomona to be added next month. With donations from family, friends and the community we were able to assemble and distribute over 500 Blessing Bags and sack lunch for over 170. Blessing Bags contain hygiene items, water and granola bars.
The Circle is off to a great start and are excited for the future and the impact they hope to make. Want to know more about how to get involved? Check out their Facebook page!
