Last Week's Meeting
Last week we learned about HandsOn Suburban Chicago (HOSC)- Connecting People With Purpose.  Its mission is to positively impact communities by connecting people to enriching volunteer experiences and it accomplishes its mission by recruiting and connecting volunteers with area nonprofits and schools and educating and training the community about best practices in volunteer management.  Jordan Friedman, the organization's Executive Director, and Ed Lorgeree, a member of the Board, explained how HOSC harnesses the power of volunteers to strengthen 44 communities and build capacity for close to 150 nonprofits in Northern Cook and Northern DuPage Counties.
