Groups join together to benefit community

Nevada County Habitat for Humanity and See Jane Do have announced a partnership geared to help bring about successful and beneficial collaborations for others seeking to leverage resources and relationships for the greater good.

The two organizations created an alliance two years ago and found a recipe for success that is ready to be shared and replicated.

At 6:30 p.m. Thursday at The Center for the Arts, they will kick off a series of collaborative efforts, including short-term projects and learning modules that will help others achieve the same success. Admission is free.

“We have a proven method of awakening connections that we want to share. This event will light a spark that will ignite many more productive partnerships in this community we all love” says Elisa Parker, CEO and founder of See Jane Do.

“We were blown away by how this collective effort connected over 400 people from all over the country to a common cause. This alliance has resulted in growing our donor and volunteer database by 18 percent in a three-month time frame. These astounding results have inspired us to collaborate more than ever,” said Debbie Arakel, executive director of Nevada County Habitat for Humanity.
