Meeting Minutes for September 12th, 2021 w/ the Team
Happy September everyone! (Stream September by Earth, Wind, & Fire) Thank you to everyone who came to our first meeting of the year. The samosas, cookies, and cupcakes were amazing, as was the company!
Here’s what we covered in the meeting:
What is DOC NC?
- DOC NC, or Dedicated to our community of North Carolina, is a local non-profit that raises funds for a different organization each year. In the past, we have fundraised for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle, Duke PBMT, and the Suhanee Foundation. You can visit docnc.org to learn more!
We have quite a few new members!
