Frederick is full of amazing nonprofits. They serve a wide variety of needs, filling voids and providing services to make the community a better place in whatever way they can. We’re all different — we have unique missions and goals. But we have one thing in common: We exist to make a positive difference.

CLI is so proud to be partnering with the Grant Seeker’s Resource Center of the Frederick County Public Library to present a monthly Community Forum Night. The event will be held the first Tuesday of every month, from 5 to 7 p.m., in the Community Room of the FCPL. It will be free, and refreshments will be provided.

Each month will be hosted by a different participating organization. You’ll get to hear about what they do, why their mission is important, and how you can help. But at each event, all partner organizations will be present to hand out information and talk with attendees.

CLI is excited about this for several reasons. Firstly, this is a great opportunity for people in the community to learn about the nonprofits right in their own backyard. Interested in volunteering but not sure where to give your time? This is the perfect forum to find out how you can make a difference. Second, it gives businesses and other organizations the chance to network with one another and find out how they can work together for the greater good of the community. Think your business could be of service to a local organization? This is a great opportunity to connect with others who might benefit from what have to offer.

Special thanks to the following participating organizations that are proudly supporting this monthly event: Daybreak Adult Day Services, the YMCA of Frederick County, the Frederick Rescue Mission, and the Fredericktowne Players.

We couldn’t be more excited about this networking opportunity, and we really hope you’ll come out and join us for the first event Tuesday, Nov. 1.
