CVNL Members Offer Shop-Worthy Ways to Give

Dawn Bell

Dawn has worked in the nonprofit sector most of her professional life, where she developed a penchant for event planning. Second only to her love of logistics, is fundraising where she believes creating relationships is the key component for successful partnerships. Additionally, she believes that volunteering is the cornerstone of a strong community and volunteers regularly.

Visit our member directory and click on your favorite.  Most sites have donate buttons on their homepages making it simple to give.  Be sure to check their menus for e-commerce options.  CVNL Membership Directory

You can always choose to give a donation to your preferred nonprofit in someone’s name. 

Whatever you do, be safe while shopping and stay well.  Somebody needs you.
