The community is invited to the grand opening of Project Unity’s Club 365 Wednesday, September 12, 4:30pm to 6:00pm.On Wednesday, September 12, Project Unity will launch Club365, a community-wide initiative designed to raise awareness and collectively find answers to solve local problems. The board and staff of Project Unity invites the community to Project Unity’s new headquarters, located at 4001 East 29th Street, Suite 114, for a B/CS Chamber ribbon cutting ceremony and community reception to formally launch Club365. The office is in the Carter Creek Center. This event will take place from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Front-line staff will be available to share with the public about what “a day in the life” of Project Unity is like. The public is invited to ask questions about anything having to do with Project Unity’s work.

Club 365 is based on the premise that together, each person in our community can all do their part 365 days a year. For $365 a year – just $1 per day – the community can support Project Unity’s work: to prevent child abuse and neglect, feed the hungry, unite families with parenting support, provide jobs for the unemployed, and provide medical care and housing for people suffering from HIV and AIDS. In return, Project Unity will be committed to ensuring donor trust. Www.club365.org will display Project Unity’s financial activities as well as program accomplishments and/or challenges monthly.

In order for the community to stay connected, Jeannie McGuire, founder and president of Project Unity, will tell the stories of Project Unity through blogging on the Club 365.org website or on Facebook at www.facebook.com\Club365Project.

“Only by knowing the issues and struggles facing citizens in our community can a community come together to solve them,” says McGuire. In the past 10 months, Project Unity fed 1,130 individuals through two of its four food pantries; increased the quality of life for 188 individuals suffering from HIV/AIDS; prevented child abuse/neglect with 281 families; helped 120 individuals with their specific goal of getting off government assistance; and kept children safe for the 230 families needing supervised visitation with the non-custodial parent. Project Unity provides these services in the seven-county Brazos Valley region.

Project Unity has been providing help…and hope for more than 17 years; Project Unity is now asking for help. McGuire, along with her professional team of front line-staff, will be at the Bryan Rotary Club meeting at Briarcrest Country Club at approximately 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday September 12, to “kick off the Club365 movement.”
