Over 500 community members, 35+ non-profits, local businesses, city department directors and elected officials from Shasta County, Redding and Shasta Lake City joined forces on Saturday, June 3rd at Redding City Hall to make connections, share ideas and perspectives, and get involved with solutions for some of the issues in our community.
170+ locals took the Purpose Match Workshop at City Connect 2017 to discover which volunteer roles might best suit their interests, skills, and motivations.
Participating non-profits expressed gratitude for their new partner volunteers, advocates and/or supporters. “This is a great place to live, people want to join in and be a part of this community.”
Over 15 of our elected officials, city department directors, and city council members from both Redding and Shasta Lake City came to with a sincere interest to engage with the public, hear ideas, and share vision and perspectives from their unique reference point.
Event-goers enjoyed great food and drink samplings and activities for all ages from the beautiful photography of our region, to face-painting, inspiration word bead bracelet making, hula hoop lessons and more. The high-quality CityConnect herbal infusion glass water bottles, t-shirts, koozies, and trendy jute totes were a big hit that anyone could “buy” with tickets that were earned by making connections and getting involved with event non-profits.
It was a great day – we hope to see you at City Connect 2018!
