With the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays fast approaching, the Waterford Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting a community luncheon to bring various non-profit agencies together in one place so the public is more informed on the role each one plays and their specific needs this season.
The Spirit of Community luncheon will held on Wednesday, Nov. 28 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Scott Lake Banquet Center, located at 2100 Scott Lake Road.
The cost is $15 per person.
“We want the public to become familiar with what’s in the community and pitch in,” said Waterford Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Marie Hauswirth. “It’s all about bringing about awareness.”
The non-profits that have signed up so far this year include the Breakfast Optimist Club; Christmas in Action; Community Network Services; the Open Door Outreach Center; the Waterford Coalition for Youth; Waterford Youth Assistance; Home Instead; and the Drayton Plains Nature Center.
“We’d like to get as many (non-profits to participate) as possible,” Hauswirth said. “They all have charitable initiatives and are working for a cause to help charities.”
