Over 30 representatives from community organizations, county agencies, faith-based groups and businesses attended the Gloucester Resource Council’s kickoff meeting for 2012-13 last Wednesday in the Gloucester Library community room.
Council chair Ellie Galloway said information on the CommunityConnection for non-profits was reviewed and shared during the meeting.
The CommunityConnection service provides a weekly town crier announcement board, a volunteer needs/opportunities database, a community calendar of events and public meetings, grant and foundation information and non-profit training opportunities.
The service can be found on the Gloucester County website at www.gloucesterva.info. Non-profit organizations were encouraged to check the community resource directory, also on the county website, to ensure that their group is listed and the information updated.
In other news, the GRC formed two subcommittees to address poverty and workplace/affordable housing issues.
