Pop-in and say *HI* to ynpnGO and friends! On Tuesday, August 28th, ynpnGO board members will be set up at No More Empty Cups with Nancy Williams, President and CEO of No More Empty Pots. Drop in anytime from 11:00am-1:00pm to:
--Connect with Nancy and ynpnGO board members
--Learn about No More Empty Pots and their mission
--Learn about ynpnGO and benefits of membership
--Sign up for a ynpnGO membership! ($25 annually/$15 for AmeriCorps or students)
First 5 people in the door will receive a free coffee drink on us! Also, sign up for a ynpnGO membership and get in free to our Trivia Night Fundraiser on Sept. 19th. (a $10 value!)
These pop-ups are a casual, low-key way to get to know ynpnGO and the benefits of a membership with us, and at the same time introduce yourself to a local nonprofit leader. Ask questions about their career path, the specific part of the nonprofit world they're working in (advocacy, food policy, human services, etc.), or whatever!
