The705 is a nonprofit organization for young professionals with a mission to develop our members and our community personally, professionally, and civically. The Philanthropy committee is specifically committed to giving back to our community and its residents through good-will, support, and volunteerism.
February is all about Kindness. Join the705 as it participates in Random Act of Kindness Week. Throughout the month, the705 Philanthropy Committee will be collecting letters and items to deliver to senior facilities to spread kindness.
In addition to our letter writing campaign to bring cheer to senior living facilities, we are hoping to pair each letter with a small gift of a small plush toy or non-slip socks for each senior. Our committee has a goal of reaching 300 seniors.
- $8 provides supplies to write 5 letters.
- $25 provides a small plush toy for 25 seniors in our community.
- $50 provides a pair of non-slip socks to 48 seniors in our community.
Money in excess of our goal will go into the Philanthropy Committee budget to be used to support the community in other endeavors through the year.
