Blogs can sometimes be hubs where over-sharing takes place, huh. Have you ever read something and thought, “whoa, that was way too much information.” Well, that’s not the vibe here, but I do want to get a little more personal and share something close to my heart.
After learning recently that there were 680 documented cases of homeless students last year within the Folsom Cordova School District, a group of residents and I decided to something about it. We call ourselves Project 680 and we seek to find simple and practical ways to assist these “680? students located in Folsom and Rancho Cordova.
The Project 680 Promo Video Explains it All:
On March 11th, 2009 at 6:30pm we have a community forum set up at 10600 Coloma Road in Rancho Cordova (Cordova Neighborhood Church is giving us free meeting space). We’ll meet with the District Liaison for Homeless Services, have a Q&A, and then take part in discussion as a community about what it can look like to support local students. This is about working together to discover simple solutions to a real problem that is relevant to many areas in the Sacramento Region. You are invited and please spread the word. For more information, see www.cordovatowne.com, leave a comment, or give me a call at 916-595-3735. Thank you.
What does this have to do with real estate appraisal? Not much per se. But isn’t it great when we can pool our resources together to make a meaningful difference in the lives of local students? Isn’t it wonderful when local businesses can network and promote something altruistic that impacts the local community? In both our personal and professional lives we can find ways to bring positive change in our communities, even in this economy – that’s the good stuff in life.
Have a tremendous day of business everyone!!!
