Social Networking Matters
We’re not just updating our status; we’re
building a network of people who can help.
We use social networking to send out
calls for action. When we need help —
extra baked goods, winter coats for the
kids in our shelter, or volunteers to help
cook a meal (when we’re short-handed)
— can we turn to you?

make a difference.
