Ty Pennington took time out of his busy schedule to visit us with Extreme Makeover: Charity Edition (in our dreams!). Seriously, GEOMEER has undergone some great changes including a revamped website, the addition of a new staff member, and our motto: because community matters. We are working to improve our organization every day because we want to serve our community in the best way possible. One of our biggest new events, the Suit Up! clothing campaign is almost upon us.
For Suit Up! GEOMEER will give Old Navy gift cards to families in need. These families will be able to shop for back-to-school clothing after hours on Sunday, August 21st . The goal of this initiative is to relieve the stress in families caused by the enormous costs that occur as students go back-to-school. What’s really great is that in Suit Up! it is the students, with the input of their families, who get to choose their own outfits. For a more detailed description of the event, check out the Suit Up! page on our website.
Does this sound like something you want to be a part of making happen? Then join us by donating at: http://geomeer.ca/?page_id=31. Every dollar of every donation goes directly to improving the lives of local families struggling to overcome poverty. Why should you become involved? Because community matters and together we can build a stronger community.
