January 2021                                                

 
 
During the pandemic, your agency may have switched into maintenance mode, meaning that you placed a limit on the services you provide or the methods of delivery of those services. Many of us put our wish list aside and decided that survival would become our modus operandi.

Moving into 2021 - and the beginning stages of vaccinating the population - we need to look toward getting back to our usual way of doing business or, better yet, making those improvements we know are possible in order to make an even greater impact on the community. The time is now to take our nonprofits to the next level, and we do that by building capacity.

Where do we start? The answer is training. Through the MS Alliance of Nonprofits and Philanthropy, you will find a wide array of training topics. Take a look at this month's calendar:
 
Specifics about each training can be found here: https://alliancems.org/training/   
You may want to bookmark the link and refer to it often. The February calendar will come out soon. 

Additionally, if you have ideas about training you would like to receive, please let us know! Just email rebecca@unitedwaynems.org with your suggestions.


NONPROFIT SPOTLIGHT                                               
      American Red Cross

The North Mississippi chapter of the American Red Cross is one of eight chapters under the umbrella of Red Cross of Alabama and Mississippi. Most people are familiar with the Red Cross's immediate and outstanding response to disasters, but some may not know that they offer assistance in a variety of ways all year long:

  • Training in first aid, CPR, water safety, and more 
  • Free disaster preparedness education classes
  • Blood collection
  • Relay urgent messages to U.S. armed service members
  • Works with global Red Cross to meet the needs of the most vulnerable populations
To learn more about Red Cross, visit their website. You may also want to attend their virtual open house on January 21 at 6:00 pm to find out about volunteering.
 



 
SOCKS AND SCIVVIES DRIVE

There's still time to collect socks and underwear for our drive. Donations will be collected on Monday, January 18, in honor of Martin Luther King National Day of Service. The two drop-off locations will be All Saints' Episcopal Church (608 W. Jefferson) and Midtown Pointe Food Court (699 S. Gloster) in Tupelo. Drop-off times are 10:00-2:00. 
 
   



If you have not submitted our Volunteer Activity Report for December yet, please do so by January 15.

These reports are vital to letting funders know that Mississippi nonprofits are utilizing volunteers to help keep costs down.

If you have already sent in your numbers, thank you!
