Posted by newbergcityclub on November 20, 2015

You’re invited to Newberg City Club’s luncheon presentation on Tuesday, Dec. 1. In the spirit of the season we have a special presentation by Jodi Hansen, Executive Director at Love INC. Our community, including so many Newberg City Club members, generously support individuals and families in need. We know who the givers are, but what does this look like on the receiving end? Poverty, employed families struggling to make ends meet; what are their stories?  What does the ‘need’ look like in our community? Jodi will share information about the economic hardships in our community, you’ll learn about the numbers of households who work hard every day to earn above the federal poverty level, but not enough to afford a basic household budget, including: childcare, food, transportation, and insurance.
