I wake up every morning and think, “There’s so much I want to do!”
Today brought the opportunity to start doing one of the items on my list; helping to solve the homeless problem in the Charlottesville community. Today I was elected to the board of People and Congregations Engaged in Ministry (PACEM). I became familiar with PACEM when my church hosted homeless guests over the first two winters we have lived in Charlottesville. I learned more about the organization while working on the www.voicesofpoverty.org project when we interviewed homeless guests and PACEM director Dave Norris for a podcast series devoted to the poverty problem in our community.
I’m excited about the opportunity to contribute what I know about community relations, media strategy, development techniques and strategic planning to help this worthwhile organization.
There’s so much I want to do!
