Prior to each Global Cynergies team meeting we work with our local partners, this time Green Valley Ranch, Henderson, NV, to support a local charity; one that is committed to meeting the needs in the community.
This Fall our meeting was held in Las Vegas and our charity of choice was the Robert Taylor Elementary School. Janet Dobry, Principal of Robert Taylor, spoke briefly to our group, explaining their particular situation and needs.
Although just outside Las Vegas, this school district is in a pocket of severe poverty; these families struggle just to meet their children’s basic needs. One need in particular is toiletries and basic personal care items, such as shampoo, laundry soap, and toilet paper, which cannot be purchased with food stamps.
Global Cynergies team members from all over the world donated items or gift cards which will be used to purchase what is most needed.
