A workshop for the whole community: If your values move you to help your neighbors in need, join us for a lively discussion on Sunday, October 25, on key factors that keep people stuck in poverty, and how you can pitch in to help them break free. Casey Hinkel, LSW, the social worker at Valley Interfaith Food and Clothing Center, is leading this class at the request of A&HT as a service to the Mill Creek Valley community. She’ll help us explore the causes of poverty, survival and choice-making, barriers that bog people down, and ways to work together to break the cycle. This workshop includes supper and the chance to connect with others who share your goals and questions. It’s open to everyone, with or without a faith affiliation. For more information, call Don Schmidt at 513-606-2669. The class size is limited to allow time for discussion: please RSVP by October 20 to Sarah Cotterill, firstname.lastname@example.org, 513-821-5341. More information can be found here.
