Earlier in the year we shared with you a little about our long-standing partnership with the Monadnock United Way (MUW), something that has been near and dear to our hearts for more than a decade. The organization has done so much good over the years and despite the tremendous challenges we’ve all faced in the last 18 months, the selfless volunteers at MUW haven’t missed a beat and have continued to care for the most vulnerable in our community.
Thanks to the tremendous support of volunteers last year, local families were able to receive essential services, childcare centers remained open, and emergency food and shelter was provided to those who needed it most. This is the kind of teamwork anyone can be proud of, but for it to be done in the middle of a pandemic is awe inspiring!
August saw the kick-off of the MUW 2021 Annual Campaign, a yearly project which is still in need of volunteers and the best part is – you can volunteer remotely!
Facing challenges head-on, volunteers remain the heart of the MUW and the projects it serves. With so many inspiring initiatives at work we wanted to let you all know about a way for you to get involved as well. To find out more about the 2021 campaign and how you can get involved, please check out volunteer opportunities on their website.
Whether you’re a student looking for a way to get involved in your community, a professional who wants to give back, or a retiree passionate about their hometown, there is an opportunity for everyone to support and play to their strengths because after all we are stronger together!
As a reminder, for all of 2021 Baudelaire is donating 5% of the proceeds from our Curated Gifts Collection to the Monadnock United Way! So if you’re looking for something special to give this Fall then make sure to pick up something from our collection and know your gift will be giving back to the community at the same time!
