Community Gathering

It is so easy to become isolated even in the biggest of cities. Bringing people together, supporting opportunities for them to interact, enhancing connections: these strengthen the social fabric of a community. A fabric is so much stronger than individual threads. It also encourages those coming together for a special event a commonality with others they may not otherwise recognize. Encouraging those opportunities for multi-generations to gather, particularly where it is open and free to all, are where we can provide greatest impact. This usually takes the form of events or contributing to the infrastrusture to make it happen.
