November Volunteer Event - Rescue Mission

As we approach Thanksgiving this time of year provides a calm opportunity to reflect on life's blessings.  While, it is certainly important to consider the good in our own lives, it is equally important to positively impact the lives of those around us.

For this reason, the MVYP strongly encourages its membership to take some time out of their busy schedules and help the less fortunate right here at home.  Thus, please join the Mahoning Valley Young Professionals on Monday, November 20 for our November volunteer opportunity at the Rescue Mission of Mahoning Valley.  The Rescue Mission of Mahoning Valley is located at 962 Martin Luther King Jr., Blvd., Youngstown, Ohio 44501.

If you are interested in more information or would like to RSVP please contact the MVYP Gives Committee, by November 17, 2017.

August Mixer & Volunteer Event - Magic Tree Pub & Eatery

We are partnering with our 2017 Young Philanthropist Fund Grant recipient, Making Kids Count,  to make our mixer not only a fun way to network, but also to give back to the community. 

This month's mixer will feature an interactive philanthropic activity in partnership with Making Kids Count.  We will be making comfort blankets and care kits for foster care children.  Making Kids Count's Comfort Kit program ensures that infants, children & teens entering the foster care system receive a hopeful start by giving them new care bags to replace items they were forced to leave behind, or never had to begin with. 

The mixer will feature networking, volunteer activities, appetizers and a CASH (pay your own) bar.

In the philanthropic spirit, the entrance fees are:
Members: $5
Non-Members: $10
If you bring "back to school supplies" your entrance fee will be waived.
