BOARD FOCUSES ON IMPROVING THE LIVES OF CHILDREN LIVING IN POVERTY:
At the September Board meeting your Board of Directors voted to focus the chapter's advocacy efforts and community projects on improving the health and well-being of children in Northern California who are currently living in poverty. Special focus will be given to food insecurity issues. The Board will provide updates on their plan to address this serious problem within our chapter and would welcome your suggestions, resources and participation. Contact the chapter office if you wish to volunteer for this endeavor: firstname.lastname@example.org
