RU12? Now Serving Coffee!


Coffe kim daniLisa Wagner, long-term volunteer for RU12?, recently donated a Keurig single cup coffee maker to the community center and we are loving it!

Lisa has been volunteering at RU12? since 2009 through a program at her place of employment, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, that lets employees do volunteer work during their work hours.

When we asked Lisa why she chose to volunteer at RU12?, she said, "I wanted to volunteer some place I could relate to." Since volunteering at RU12?, Lisa has worked in several areas of the community center including assisting on creating a database to help track contacts for grants and helping in the library. Recently, Lisa decided to give back in a new way. Last Wednesday she donated a new Keurig coffee IMG_7531 maker to the community center. "I wanted to give something to the community. I was really happy to see how much it is used."

Lisa is certainly right; the Keurig has already been much enjoyed. But don’t just take our word for it, stop by the community center and enjoy a wonderful cup of coffee yourself.

Events that you could help create:

 

Summer Semester

Summer SemesterOne of RU12? Community Center’s first programs is back! Summer Semester offers the opportunity for LGBTQ community members to draw upon the skill, ability and knowledge of our talented peers with short series of classes throughout the summer. Potential classes to be offered include: Basic Car Maintainance, Yoga, Financial Planning, Photography, Zumba, Resume Writing, Home Ownership and more!

Family Bowling!

When you host a bowl-a-thon, you recruit people to bowl on a designated day for your special event. Each participating bowler solicits a flat rate pledge among neighbors, friends, and relatives. This could be a fun way to get families to engage in supporting RU12? as well as having a great event for families to enjoy together.

Grab a Bite with Friends

1dinner

Help introduce the community to RU12? by working with your favorite local restaurants to host benefit nights.

 

 

House or Garden Party

1dinner1

Team up with a friend or neighbor to put together a fabulous event for your friends. Let them know how much you care about your community and ask them to support a organization you believe in.

Tee Off With RU12?

Hosting a golf tournament can be a high-profile, and often very lucrative fundraising event. A great advantage of hosting a tournament is the connections you make with local businesses and celebrities that support the RU12? Community Center. Plan a whole day event with lunch and prizes.

 

Pitch us your own idea!
