Volunteer to make our region a better place

We are pleased to share the following Letter to the Editor, published by the Keene Sentinel on November 1st, about the importance of volunteerism in our region. Without volunteers, the work of Impact Monadnock & Monadnock United Way would not be possible!

This letter was authored by Liz LaRose, MUW President; Kathy Baird, Program Director of Monadnock RSVP Volunteer Center; and Jay Kahn, State Senator, District 10.

Impact Monadnock Celebration on November 16th

Whether you were a part of the early formation of Impact Monadnock back in 2015 or whether you’re still actively involved in the work today, you have contributed to the initiative’s early success… and we can’t thank you enough!

Please come out for a fun evening where we plan to recognize Impact Monadnock’s volunteers and staff (past and present), celebrate our accomplishments, and look toward the future of this work as the signature impact initiative of Monadnock United Way.

We have reserved the upper level of Margarita’s for this special event. Complimentary appetizers will be provided and a cash bar will be available.

Save the Dates: Monadnock Region Community Action Forums on Early Childhood

Impact Monadnock, Monadnock Region school districts, and River Valley Community College will be hosting Monadnock Region Community Action Forums on Early Childhood in September and October 2016.

These forums will offer:

  • Opportunities for communities to make their voices heard about the challenges facing our young children and families and how best to tackle them.
  • Opportunities to create understanding and awareness of the importance of investing in early childhood as a way to improve the overall well-being of the Monadnock Region.

Forums will be facilitated by New Hampshire Listens, a civic engagement initiative of the Carsey School of Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire. New Hampshire Listens works at the local and state level to support civil, public deliberation of complex issues affecting everyday lives. Check out the attached flyer for all the details.
