Connect, Learn, & Grow

It is the mission of the Women's Business Bridge to
Connect, Learn, & Grow in everything we do! 
We encourage YOU to strive for that too! 

Make it a GOAL to accomplish these 3 things this month:

1. Set up a coffee or lunch date with someone you would like to get to know better!  Seek out someone NEW to Connect with!

2. Plan to Attend every monthly meeting and BRING a Guest! - So much to Learn from our speakers and each other!

3. Find other WBB members who can be Referral Partners for you! Grow your brand/business through other's word of mouth!

As part of our initiative to elevate WBB as we grow, earlier this year we started the process to find 2 community organizations that we could partner with and support. You nominated, the Community Outreach Committee recommended, and the Board approved these amazing organizations. 

Safe Haven Foster Shoppe:  Safe Haven Foster Shoppe is a non-profit organization that provides essentials to children in foster care primarily north and east of the Twin Cities and Western Wisconsin WI (Polk and St. Croix counties).  Safe Haven Foster Shoppe’s goal is to provide placement items for foster children and alleviate the financial burden on foster homes by soliciting, collecting, and packaging placement packs for distribution through a network of county agencies and directly with foster homes.  

Women UNITED, is an affiliate program of the United Way of Washington County East. This program works with partnering agencies including: Valley Outreach, Tubman, Solid Ground and St. Andrew’s Resource Center, to provide support to low-income, single mothers and parents in need. Since 2016, the United Way has been able to award 8 scholarships. This is an exciting time for Women United. The leaders are looking for a community of women that can help shape this program and have a real impact. 

If you have any questions about our Community Outreach efforts, please feel free to contact Holly Corbid, WBB Community Outreach Coordinator or one of the other Committee members (Sommer Spector Angstman, Laura Bracklein, Sheila-Marie Untiedt).

There will be much more to come. Thank you for your future support!
